Geological History of Britain and Ireland tells the geological story of the region at a level accessible to undergraduate geologists, as well as to postgraduates, professionals or informed amateurs. The book takes a multi-disciplinary rather than a purely stratigraphical approach, and aims to bring to life the processes behind the catalogue of historical events. Full coverage is given to the rich Precambrian and Early Palaeozoic history, as well as to later events more relevant to hydrocarbon exploration. The book is profusely illustrated and contains guides to further reading and full references to data sources, making it an essential starting point for more detailed studies of the regional geology.
- All British Earth science undergraduates will be required to spend some time studying British Geological History, and this book will be the only one available to British undergraduates
- The book takes a process-based approach, rather than simply describing the regional stratigraphy
- Lavishly illustrated with high-quality diagrams
