During the Carboniferous, Anglesey lay close to the equator, but globally the planet had entered a new ice age. This resulted in frequent sea level changes, producing sequences of fluvial sandstones (low sea level stand), shallow marine limestones, and shales (high sea level stands).
TULSA Shale with thin and lenticular sandstone, minor limestone, and coal. OKLAHOMA CITY Mainly finegrained micaceous sandstone and shale locally containing coal beds. Thickness ranges from about 500 to 950 feet. FORT SMITH Shale, sandstone, and thin coal seams.
Sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sandsized ( to 2 mm) mineral particles or rock fragments. 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 .
Alternating clays and shales and thinbedded limestones, with fire clay and coal, overlying RichlandGordon sandstones and underlying BrownwoodRanger series. Study area in central basin, approximately from Colorado River north to Red River, northcentral Texas. Age is Carboniferous (Coal Measures).

In southeastern Oklahoma, Carboniferous (Upper Missis sippian—Lower Pennsylvanian) deepwater sandstones and shales form a thick flysch succession that is exposed in a series of
Overlying the Rockwell Formation is the Purslane Formation, typified by graygreen, tan, and white, crossbedded sandstones and quartzpebble conglomerates with interbedded gray siltstones, shales, and coaly shales. Only about 350 feet of the formation occur on Sideling Hill, the remainder, an unknown thickness, having been removed by erosion.
Cork: COUNTY GEOLOGY OF IRELAND 3 of which now contain flattened fossils. Overlying this were deposited limestones which were precipitated in a shallow, warm tropical ocean.

The outlier is probably faultbounded on the northeast (Pringle and MacGregor, 1940). About 18 m of Carboniferous sedimentary rocks are exposed; basal conglomerates are overlain by reddish gritty sandstones, reddish mottled mudstones, purplish shales and some paler, finegrained sandstones, the finer beds containing poorly preserved plant remains.
Carboniferous Sandstones and Shales, includes sandstones, shales and thin bioclastic limestones. The overlying Ballyvergin Shale Formation is a thin (maximum thickness 10 m) distinctive shale horizon, which marks the transition from the Lower Carboniferous Sandstones and Shales to the overlying Carboniferous limestone sequence (TietzschTyler et
The majority of Carboniferous sources of roofing stone in England are Silesian sandstones which are most important in Yorkshire, Lancashire, County Durham, Northumberland and Cumbria, but they have also produced locally important stone slates in Bristol, South Wales and in the Welsh Marches.

The southern edge of the county is formed by the scarps and moorlands of the Carboniferous Limestone and Millstone Grit (both of which form also the outlier of Pencerygcalch north of Crickhowell), while the lowest beds of the Coal Measures of the South Wales coalfield are reached in the Tawe and Neath valleys (where the beds are much folded) and near Tredegar and Brynmawr.
