      The Silurian of Gotland consists of m carbonate deposits, spanning the late Llandovery to late Ludlow epochs ( m.y.). Repeatedly, uniform sequences of micritic limestones and marks are interrupted by complex-structured reefs and adjacent platform sediments. The Virtual Silurian Reef is a K distance-learning project of the Geology Section of the Milwaukee Public Museum, funded by the Wisconsin Advanced Telecommunications Foundation. During the Silurian Period in earth history, million years ago, when much of North America was covered by a shallow, tropical sea, reefs flourished in the area now occupied by Wisconsin and Illinois.

Photo: Morten Smelror Around million years ago Gotland comprised a shallow sea lying on the edge of a continent close to the equator. In these warm waters carbonates and fine clastic sediments accumulated among the coral reefs and bioherms.

During the Silurian, the reefs between Saaremaa and Gotland were flourishing to a much larger extent than is visible today. The primary Silurian reef pattern was increasingly destroyed towards.

This has resulted in a large area void of Wenlock reefs off northern Gotland. Off southern Gotland, the narrow conical low-energy deeper-water reefs prevail, as the wave-agitated shallow-water facies with larger and lenticular Wenlock and Ludlow reefs are largely eroded around the Gotland by: 5.

Gotland is built up by a Middle Palaeozoic table-land, with an average height of m, but with some higher hills in the inland and with steep cliffs. Patch reefs up to 35 m thick and generally – m wide, separated by bedded inter-reef sediment, dominate the Högklint Formation (Lower Wenlock) of north-west Gotland.

The spacing between adjacent patch reefs is variable, but is commonly – m. COVID Resources.

Reefs form as 'barriers' in shallower waters and as isolated 'pinnacles' in deeper water. The reefs are formed by a whole collection of different organisms performing different tasks in the reef building process. The principles of the reef building process are the same today as in the Silurian million years ago.

About this book. A newly discovered, diverse sponge fauna of early Silurian age, is described from Gotland, Sweden. This is the first Silurian sponge assemblage known from Baltica, and the only diverse Llandoverian assemblage known worldwide.

The fauna includes 20 genera and 29 species, of which three genera and six species are new. Gotland, a Silurian-aged coral-reef island with white sand beaches, lies not in the tropics but in the Baltic Sea off the southeastern coast of Sweden just a short trip from Stockholm.

In addition to the carbonate geology, visitors can view medieval churches and thatched-roof Viking farms, and experience the moody, atmospheric weather featured in the films of director Ingmar Bergman. 53 Chapter V THE FOSSIL REEFS OF GOTLAND, GENERAL Now that a general view has been obtained of the picture in which the Silurian reefs of Gotland fit, we may in this chapter begin a more detailed description of these reefs by discussing their typological, geographical and stratigraphical distribution and organic and lithological composition.

Silurian stromatoporoid-dominated reefs of Gotland, Sweden, are bioherms and biostromes formed during phases of reduced clastic supply. Well-exposed examples are in the early Wenlock Högklint Formation and middle Ludlow Hemse Group.

Reef development culminated in shallow water biostromes, laterally expanded over a stabilized substrate and associated with frequent erosion Cited by: Title.

Silurian Period, in geologic time, the third period of the Paleozoic Era. It began million years ago and ended million years ago, extending from the close of the Ordovician Period to the beginning of the Devonian Period.

During the Silurian, continental elevations were generally muchMissing: Gotland. Gotland is made up of a sequence of sedimentary rocks of a Silurian age, dipping to the south-east.

The main Silurian succession of limestones and shales comprises thirteen units spanning to m ( to 1, ft) of stratigraphic thickness, being thickest in the south, and overlies a 75 to m ( to ft) thick Ordovician nates: 57°30′N 18°33′E / °N °E.

Rocky shores are poorly reported from Silurian rocks, but such environments have been recognised at several horizons in the Silurian of Gotland, demonstrating their importance in the sequence development. Keeling, M. & Kershaw, S., Rocky shore environments in the Upper Silurian of Gotland, Sweden.
