Porthgain lime workings, Pembrokeshire, West Wales

View of Porthgain lime workings on the Pembrokeshire coast, West Wales. Limestone was shipped in from South Pembrokeshire to produce lime, a white powder which was used by farmers to make their land less acidic. It was also used in building, as a mortar and as a whitewash for walls

Limestone pavement above Malham Cove Featured Print

Limestone pavement above Malham Cove

Limestone pavement above Malham Cove
Yorkshire Dales, UK
Limestone pavement above Malham Cove has been deeply eroded by acid rain leaving clints (lumps of limestone) and grykes (the gaps in between). Grykes provide habitat for many rare or unusual plants such as hart's tongue ferns and enchanters nightshade. This 250 ft plus ancient outcrop of curved limestone cliffs in Yorkshire Dales, UK was once the location of a spectacular waterfall though today there is only a small beck or tarn flowing from the base. The area is species rich and managed as a National Nature Reserve.

Coloured SEM of foraminiferan, Elphidium sp Featured Print

Coloured SEM of foraminiferan, Elphidium sp

Foraminiferan shell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the test (shell) of the British formaminiferan, Elphidium crispum. Foraminifera are single-celled protozoa which construct and inhabit shells composed of several chambers. These are usually penetrated by pores through which the cellular contents is extruded. The organisms live in the sea or salt-water lakes. The shells form an important component of chalk. In previous geological ages foraminifera occurred in such enormous numbers that their shells, largely of calcium carbonate, have formed immense fossil deposits seen today as limestone.
