Description:

Geological History of Britain and Ireland, Second Edition tells the geological story of the region at a level accessible to undergraduate geologists, as well as to postgraduates, professionals or informed amateurs. The new edition takes a multidisciplinary rather than a purely stratigraphical approach, and aims to bring to life the processes behind the catalogue of historical events. 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.
