Branney, M J, and Soper, N J. Ordovician volcano-tectonics in the English Lake District. Journal of the Geological Society of London, Vol. , – Branney, M J, and Suthren, R J. High-level peperitic sills in the English Lake District: distinction from block lavas and implications for Borrowdale Volcanic Group stratigraphy. Thirty-five square miles of lavas and tufts are folded into what is essentially a broad syncline plunging east-north-east, modified b y subsidiary wrinkles. Faults trending north-west and north or north-north-east form a conspicuous pattern. Cleavage appears to be related to the major folding, but the joint-pattern is obscure. The stratigraphical sequence, from bottom to top, is: aphanitic.

Around million years ago, the fusion of the three continents surrounding this ocean set off an arc of volcanoes along a huge mountain chain.

It is initially derived from the mantle and oceanic crust and is low in silica, but as it rises through the granitic rocks of the continental crust it becomes contaminated by these silica-rich rocks and assumes an average composition of andesite (figure 7).

ROCKS of the Borrowdale Volcanic Group (BVG) form the craggy mountains in the heart of the Lake District. In late Ordovician times ( million years ago) the Lake District was the focus for one of the UK's most intense episodes of volcanic activity.

The geological history of the Lake District is written in the rocks below our feet. Rocks formed million years ago came from muddy seafloor sediments compacted and then uplifted as the landmasses collided.

They form the Skiddaw Slates. Volcanic rocks were formed from the ash and lava produced as volcanoes erupted. Borrowdale Volcanic Group, Derwentwater Independent Hostel is perfectly located for studying the oldest rocks in the Lake District.

We have million years of geological history on our doorstep. The Skiddaw Group lies to the north of the hostel, while to the south you will see the craggier terrain of the Borrowdale Volcanic Group. Tuff (from the Italian tufo), also known as volcanic tuff, is a type of rock made of volcanic ash ejected from a vent during a volcanic ing ejection and deposition, the ash is compacted into a solid rock in a process called that contains greater than 50% tuff.

BGS Downloads - This Research Report discusses the lithostratigraphical framework of all the volcanic and intrusive rocks in the English Lake District, and their correlatives in the nearby Cross Fell and Teesdale inliers.

The volcanic rocks in the Lake District are represented by two main lithostratigraphical units, the Eycott and Borrowdale volcanic groups. Lake Superior Geology. These dark rocks, familiar around Lake Superior, are evidence of ancient volcanic activity.

Called basalt, this volcanic rock is seen here at Temperance River State Park in Minnesota and can be found in all the state parks along Lake Superior’s Minnesota shore. The resulting rocks comprise what is now known as the Borrowdale Volcanic Group, which forms the base of the mountainous middle of the park.

The rocks are conspicuous brown peaks rising above the vegetated surroundings.
