The Old Red Sandstone is one of the two major ‘red-bed’ sequences of sedimentary rock in Great Britain, the other being the younger Permo–Triassic rocks that were formerly termed the ‘New Red Sandstone’ (see the companion GCR volume by Benton et al., ) to distinguish them from the Old Red Sandstone, rocks that are about   The Old Red Sandstone of the Comeragh Mountains, probably all of the upper division of the British succession, is subdivided as follows: 1, Coumshingaun Conglomerate Group ; 2, Comeragh Conglomerate-Sandstone Group; 3, Nier Sandstone Group; 4, Kiltorcan Sandstone Group. These groups are described. The Old Red Sandstone rests unconformably on Lower Palaeozoic rocks composed Cited by:

The Old Red Sandstone is an assemblage of rocks in the North Atlantic region largely of Devonian age. It extends in the east across Great Britain, Ireland and Norway, and in the west along the northeastern seaboard of North also extends northwards into Greenland and Svalbard.

The Lower Old Red Sandstone exposed on the coast near New Aberdour can be divided into a lower sandstone and conglomerate formation and an upper sandy mudstone formation which contains several sandstone lenses in its upper part.

The lower formation can be further subdivided into four lithofacies assemblages (Facies 1A to 1D) consisting of, respectively, debris flow conglomerates, Cited by: 4.

Among his geological works are The Old Red Sandstone (), The Testimony of the Rocks (), and Sketch-book of Popular : Carbonate Sedimentology is designed to take the reader from the basic aspects of limestone recognition and classification through to an appreciation of the most recent developments such as large scale facies modelling and isotope geochemistry.

Novel aspects of the book include a detailed review of carbonate mineralogy, non-marine carbonate. This fully revised and updated edition introduces the reader to sedimentology and stratigraphic principles, and provides tools for the interpretation of sediments and sedimentary rocks.

The processes of formation, transport and deposition of sediment are considered and then applied to develop conceptual models for the full range of sedimentary /5(44).

Sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized ( to 2 mm) mineral particles or rock fragments (clasts) or organic material.

Most sandstone is composed of quartz or feldspar (both silicates) because they are the most resistant minerals to weathering processes at the Earth's surface, as seen in the Goldich dissolution uncemented sand, sandstone may be.
