3 Classic geology of the North of Ireland

This tour guide for the northern part of Ireland was born out of an earlier version prepared by the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland and the Geological Survey of Ireland at the request of the Geological Society of London in support of the Society's bicentennial celebrations in 2007. The diverse age of rocks present in the northern part of Irelandcommence in the Palaeoproterozoic (about 180 million year old) and include representatives of all the systems up to and including Palaegene (60-25 million years old). Geology does not stop at political boundaries and the regional geological maps published by the Surveys show the continuity of major geological structures and lineaments that dominate the geology of Northern Ireland into the Republic of Ireland

8 Northern England [Paperback]

This new, fully revised, 5th edition of the Northern England 'Regional Geology' guide describes the wide variety of rocks, with a geological history spanning almost 500 million years, which underlie Northumberland and Durham, the English Lake District and the Isle of Man. The Lake District and Northumberland National Parks form substantial parts of the area described, whilst the Yorkshire Dales N.P., overlaps its southern margin. Recognised Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty include the Northumberland Coast, the Solway Coast, and the North Pennines, the last of these areas also being designated a UNESCO European and Global Geopark. Written for geologists, students and anyone interested in the latest interpretations of the geology of the region. [Paperback]

11 Palaeogene volcanic districts of Scotland [Book]

This rewritten new edition provides an up-to-date, generalised account of the geology that is comprehensible and of interest to the informed amateur, undergraduate and professional geologist, planner or civil engineer. While the emphasis is on the fundamentals of the regional geology and, in particular, what can be seen in the field. This account also demonstrates how some of the major advances in our understanding of the area have been made possible through the application of new techniques and concepts, and for some of these this region has provided a crucial test bed. This is most apparent in the extensive geochemical investigations of the igneous rocks, which have contributed so much to our knowledge of magma generation and evolution, both in the Hebrides and worldwide.

12 South of Scotland (new edition) [Book]

This Regional Geology Guide guide provides an overview of the geology of the south of Scotland. This account describes the geology of Scotland northward from the border with England up to a line running roughly south-west from Dunbar, on the North Sea coast, to Girvan, on the Firth of Clyde. It covers Scotland’s two southernmost administrative regions: Dumfries & Galloway and Borders, thence extending northward to include parts of Strathclyde and Lothian. For much of its length the northern boundary line to the South of Scotland geologi¬cal region coincides with the Southern Upland Fault, one of a series of major structures that partition mainland Scotland into five tectonic blocks known as terranes. The Southern Uplands form the southernmost of these but the north-west of the region described here extends beyond the Southern Upland Fault into the Girvan district, a part of the adjacent Midland Valley terrane. This allows the coeval Ordovician and Silurian successions of Girvan and the Southern Uplands to be integrated as part of the same geological exposition. [Book]

13 The Geology of Northern Ireland - Our Natural Foundation [Book]

This guide to Northern Ireland supersedes the earlier Regional Geology Guide and provides a completely new and comprehensive account of the geology of the region. Northern Ireland represents a small area of the Earth's surface, but contains a huge variety of rock types, representing many different geological ages which are reflected in the sheer variety of landscape. Landscape reflects the interaction of rock type and geological processes which give rise to the environmental niches supporting the varied flora and fauna to be found in Northern Ireland. br> …more…

14 The Pennines and adjacent areas [Book]

This book gives a comprehensive account of the geology of the region. It is written for the student and amateur geologist, but will also provide others, such as the professional geologist, planner and civil engineer, with an overview of the geology.The Quaternary deposits (Chapter 8) are described in more detail, in comparison with the solid rocks, reflecting their importance to many users of earth science information and the increased awareness of the importance of the Quaternary Period to present-day global environmental and climatic modelling.

17 The last glacial termination in Northern Ireland (GSNI & University of Ulster) [Book]

This book from the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland relates the detailed series of events caused by the last great ice sheet in the Irish Sea Basin which affected Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales during the late Devensian (between 17 000 and 13 000 years before present). Many of the sediments described were deposited at the interface between oscillating and complex glacial and marine environments. Using a combination of sediment lithofacies analysis and the latest radiocarbon techniques to determine marine fossil age, the authors have unravelled the detailed history of ice advances, retreats, the timing of related marine transgressions and have provided data for a re-evaluation of isostatic uplifts. It is a major contribution to understanding the role of ice sheets and glaciers in the evolution of the climate system at a critical time in the Earth’s history. 93pp inc. index, glossary and references.
