Holostratigraphy - The Ludlow Series (Upper Silurian) of the type area

This linked set of .pdf files contains detailed information on many aspects of the Upper Silurian Ludlow Series in its type area, around the town of Ludlow, in the Welsh Borderland of Great Britain. It includes chronostratigraphy, geochronology, lithostratigraphy, methods of correlation (biostratigraphical and non-biostratigraphical) and important sections are all covered. The different methods of correlation are integrated in a holostratigraphical scheme that is applicable to the type area and may have wider utility throughout the Welsh Borderland. The whole work is supported by a bibliography.
