This New Regional Geology Guide to Northern Ireland (second edition) provides a 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. This book presents detailed, comprehensive information in a user-friendly way; sites of national or international significance are described and illustrated through photographs and large-scale maps. Published by the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland, 298pp plus index, full colour.
