Abstract/Summary

This report presents the results of a geological mapping and earth science research project carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS) in the Afon Teifi catchment. The work was undertaken between 1995 and 1997, and was cofunded by BGS, Carmarthenshire County Council, Cyngor Sir Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire County Council and the Environment Agency (Wales). The principal aim was to provide up-to-date geological maps, and report on geological factors relevant to planning and development. The report summarises previous geological work in the area, and provides a description of the geology and geomorphology of the region based on the mapping. The report focuses on the description and inferences, that can be drawn from six thematic maps, designed to address the main issues relevant to land use in the area. The maps are for use by planners and engineers, and should be used with reference to relevant sections of this report.
