The Silurian Period. The Silurian ( to million years ago)* was a time when the Earth underwent considerable changes that had important repercussions for the environment and life within it. One result of these changes was the melting of large glacial formations. This contributed to a substantial rise in the levels of the major seas. The Silurian is a geologic period and system that extends from the end of the Ordovician Period, about ± million years ago (mya), to the beginning of the Devonian Period, about ± mya (ICS, [5]).As with other geologic periods, the rock beds that define the period's start and end are well identified, but the exact dates are uncertain by several million years.

Silurian and Devonian Murchison's study of Welsh stratigraphy resulted in this work, in which he established a coherent grouping of geological formations found elsewhere into one system, which he named the Silurian system (after a local Welsh tribe).

Other articles where The Silurian System is discussed: Sir Roderick Impey Murchison: embodied in the monumental work The Silurian System (). Following the establishment of the Silurian System, Murchison and Sedgwick founded the Devonian System, based on their research of the geology of southwestern England and the Rhineland.

Geology / Silurian System. The Silurian System is split into the following divisions or are then split into further sub-divisions or Stages.

Inevitably the definition of series and stages will be heavily influenced by the area where the rocks were first studied and the Series first defined.

During the cooperative mapping program, five Silurian formations were recognized on the west side of the Cincinnati arch and three on the east. Only the basal unit, the Brassfield Dolomite, is present on both sides. For the purposes of discussion, the outcrop area is separated into three parts: (1) the western outcrop belt, (2) the eastern outcrop belt, and (3) other exposures.
