Sequence Stratigraphy and Depositional Facies of the Silurian-Devonian Interval of the Northern Permian Basin.   The thickness increases irregularly toward the south and southwest, and in Saline and McPherson counties it averages somewhat more than feet, ranging from 80 feet in sec. 24, T. 17 S., R. 2 W., to feet beneath a Silurian outlier in sec. 20, T. 19 S., R. 2 W. The Silurian is a geologic period and system that extends from the end of the Ordovician period, about ± Ma (million years ago), to the beginning of the Devonian period, about ± Mya. As with other geologic periods, the rock beds that define the period's start and end are well identified, but the exact dates are uncertain by several million years. The base of the Silurian. See Ordovician-Silurian extinction events. A significant evolutionary milestone during the Silurian was the diversification of jawed and bony fish. Life also began to appear on land in the form of small, moss-like, vascular plants which grew beside lakes, streams, and coastlines, and also in the form of small terrestrial arthropods.

Silurian: Stratigraphy The Silurian lasted from about to million years ago. Its stratigraphy is subdivided into four epochs (from oldest to youngest): the Llandovery, the Wenlock, the Ludlow, and the Pridoli. Each epoch is distinguished from the others by the appearance of new species of graptolites.

Indoor sessions will be held in the Taohualing Hotel, Yichang City, Hubei Province, China. The mid-conference field trip will visit the Furongian to Middle Ordovician successions, the GSSPs of Dapingian and Hirnantian stages near the Yichang city, and a few historical and scenery sites of Yangtze Gorges.

The Cambrian Period was followed, million years ago, by the Ordovician Period. At that time many species died out, to be replaced by new ones in another evolutionary “explosion”, called the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event (or GOBE). During the Ordovician, the seas surrounding North America and Europe became rich in life, especially trilobites, brachiopods and reef-forming corals.

Stratigraphic nomenclature is revised for Middle Ordovician, Upper Ordovician, and Silurian rocks of the southern Rocky Mountains of Canada. Lower Ordovician stratigraphy is briefly reviewed. The names Glenogle Shales, Mount Wilson Quartzite, and Skoki Formation are retained.

Aldridge (Author) See all formats and editions Hide Author: R. Aldridge. The Silurian is a geologic period and system spanning million years from the end of the Ordovician Period, at million years ago, to the beginning of the Devonian Period, Mya.

The Silurian is the shortest period of the Paleozoic Era. As with other geologic periods, the rock beds that define the period's start and end are well identified, but the exact dates are uncertain by a few million years.

Geology / Maps. The position of land masses as long ago as four hundred million years ago was totally different to that of today. With the motion and collision of the plates that make up the earth's crust the location and climate of familiar 'hot' or 'cold' places bears little relation to the present day.

Silurian Geology. The long history of the Earth is divided into a number of named time periods or 'systems'. The Silurian System is a time period when life on Earth was still at an early stage. These pages give a broad introduction to the Earth in Silurian times.

the Silurian The third period of the Paleozoic era, between the Ordovician and Devonian periods, or the system of rocks deposited during it. The Silurian lasted from about to million years ago. The first true fish and land plants appeared, and the end of the period is marked by the climax of the Caledonian orogeny.
