Caledonian terrane relationships in Britain: an introduction

  • P. Stone (a1) and G. S. Kimbell (a2)

Extract

terrane (ter-rane’) A fault-bounded body of rock of regional extent, characterized by a geological history different from that of contiguous terranes. A terrane is generally considered to be a discrete allochthonous fragment of oceanic or continental material added to a craton at an active margin by accretion. A. G. I. Glossary of Geology. 3rd edition, 1987.
