The book tells the story of sand and the crucial role it plays in our lives.

Although the solid rocks are mainly Carbonifer­ ous, such a range of fossils, sedimentary and basic igneous rocks occurs, that there is an abundance of interest for the amateur and professional geologist.

Diagenesis affects all sediments after their deposition and includes a fundamental suite of physical, chemical and biological processes that control the texture, mineralogy and fluid-flow properties of sedimentary rocks. Understanding the processes and products of diagenesis is thus a critical component in the analysis of the evolution of sedimentary basins, and has practical implications for.

Sand and gravel constitute one of the most ubiquitous resources in the world. These nonrenewable resources are a crucial component to the lifestyle of the average person, primarily as a building material.

The use of sand and gravel as a resource is dependent on their physical characteristics, the origin of the deposit, and where it occurs.

There are also significant expanses of outcropping rock, with associated gravel patches to the south-east of Orkney, south of Fair Isle and off Tarbat Ness and Lossiemouth. In the eastern Grampians, a suite of elevated erosion surfaces that are inclined towards the inner Moray Firth and North Sea have outer margins at – m a.s.l., indicating significant Neogene uplift (Merritt et al., ).

Schematic cross section across the area illustrating the general succession of deposits. The increase in demand for sand and gravel for construction purposes has placed immense pressure on sand and gravel resources. Sand and gravel mining is a direct and obvious cause of environmental degradation (Kondolf, et al., ).

The demand for gravel is rising because its importance and role in construction is indispensible. The evolving attitudes of descendants play a vital role, as do resurfacing family traits and attitudes.

Inspired by the author’s childhood fascination with an old farmhouse whose surrounding land had been sacrificed to a family run gravel operation, Sand and Gravel /5(6). The culmination of this rise at c. years BP was marked in the Beauly and inner Moray Firths by the formation of the Main Postglacial Shoreline (MPS) and a series of emerged gravel ridges at.

The sediment composition changes somewhat approaching the north east tip of the Scottish mainland, with sandy gravel found located near the coastline, interspersed with large pockets of slightly gravelly sand and gravelly sand near to the tip, and sandy gravel, sand and muddy sand areas to the west towards the Moray Firth.

Episodic uplift of the Inner Moray Firth Basin and adjacent land areas occurred at this time (Japsen, ) and consequently contemporaneous sediments offshore are largely confined to the region east of 1ºW (Andrews et al., ).

The resources include gold, baryte, small amounts of copper, lead, zinc and manganese and large quantities of both hard rock for aggregate, and sand and gravel.
