The Carboniferous Shannon Basin of Western eire has turn into essentially the most visited box parts on the planet. It presents a fantastic chance for interpreting a variety of historic sedimentary environments, together with carbonate shelf, reefs and dirt mounds, black shales and phosphates, and a spectrum of deep sea, shallow marine, fluvio-deltaic and alluvial siliciclastic sediments. the realm boasts vast outcrops and a few of the main popular sections via turbidites, large-scale gentle sediment deformation positive aspects and sediments that demonstrate a reaction to tectonic and sea-level controls.
This box advisor offers the 1st synthesis of the important localities during this sector of Western eire, and offers an simply available guide that might consultant the reader to, and inside, quite a lot of sedimentary facies, permitting an figuring out 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 sector through various authors and descriptions problems with present debate about the Shannon Basin and its palaeoenvironmental interpretation. the sphere consultant will locate wide use in instructing and learn via educational researchers, expert and beginner geologists, in addition to via utilized geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who use those outcrops as analogues for subsurface reservoirs in lots of parts of the world.
