About this title
The land of Ireland is largely of Precambrian and Palaeozoic rocks, amply covered by the drift deposits of the very latest episodes of geological history. In The Geology of Ireland this history is traced and explained from Precambrian times to the present. Contributing specialists tell this long geological story from these early beginnings to the modern day in a sequence of pieces dealing with each period in its context. The Geology of Ireland is about the island of Ireland as a physical whole. Studies of marine geology and geophysics show that the Irish coastline does not capriciously cut off from observation a solid geology continuous in character from that of the land. Thus a short account of Ireland s economically important offshore is provided in the book. The text is intended for professional geologists and students of geology.About the Author:
Professor Charles Holland, the General Editor, is a retired Professor of Geology and Mineralogy at Trinity College, Dublin where he continues to work as an Emeritus Fellow. He is a past President of the Geological Society and of the Palaeontological Association.
