By James L. Best,Paul B. Wignall

The Carboniferous Shannon Basin of Western eire has turn into essentially the most visited box parts on the earth. It presents an incredible chance for reading a variety of historic sedimentary environments, together with carbonate shelf, reefs and dust mounds, black shales and phosphates, and a spectrum of deep sea, shallow marine, fluvio-deltaic and alluvial siliciclastic sediments. the world boasts wide outcrops and a few of the main popular sections via turbidites, large-scale smooth sediment deformation gains and sediments that exhibit a reaction to tectonic and sea-level controls.

This box advisor presents the 1st synthesis of the significant localities during this sector of Western eire, and offers an simply obtainable instruction manual that would advisor the reader to, and inside of, quite a lot of sedimentary facies, permitting an realizing of the evolving nature of the fill of this Carboniferous basin and the context of its sedimentary and tectonic evolution. The consultant summarizes fresh and new paintings within the region by means of a number of authors and descriptions problems with present debate in regards to the Shannon Basin and its palaeoenvironmental interpretation. the sphere advisor will locate wide use in instructing and examine through educational researchers, specialist and beginner geologists, in addition to by means of utilized geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who use those outcrops as analogues for subsurface reservoirs in lots of components of the world.
