Studies in the Glencoe area led to the first detailed analysis of how a large long-lived volcano is successively plumbed by magma. This was almost 100 years ago, and the early interpretation of ‘cauldron subsidence’ still influences modern volcanologists who must infer sub-surface structures in modern volcanoes.
This Glencoe book and its accompanying 1:25 000 scale map represent a complete resurvey of the volcanic rocks and their relationships. The map presents several cross-sections and a refined stratigraphy. The early ideas have been modified substantially, and the volcano is defined as perhaps the best exposed, tectonically-controlled, multi-subsidence, piecemeal caldera in the world. This book has been written with an emphasis on volcanic processes and environments and will be of interest to keen amateurs, students and professionals alike.
This pack contains a Glencoe Classical Areas guide and the accompanying 1:25 000 scale Bedrock geological map.
