UB 7111, Cladach a'Ghlinne (Jurassic of the United Kingdom)

Also known as Loch Scavaig, Elgol

Where: Scotland, United Kingdom (57.2° N, 6.1° W: paleocoordinates 46.6° N, 4.6° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Kilmaluag Formation (Great Estuarine Group), Middle Bathonian (167.7 - 164.7 Ma)

• "Ostracod Limestone"

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lagoonal or restricted shallow subtidal; gray, blue marl

• The sediments of the G.E.S. were probably laid down in large, quiet, shallow, warm lagoons, not open directly to the sea, with the sandy beds of the succession indicating river deltas.
• The marlstones are dark blue-grey in colour, but weather to a very much paler hue

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
