The Carboniferous Shannon Basin of Western eire has develop into the most visited box components on the planet. It offers an incredible chance for interpreting quite a lot 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 realm boasts huge outcrops and a few of the main popular sections via turbidites, large-scale delicate sediment deformation positive aspects and sediments that reveal a reaction to tectonic and sea-level controls.
This box consultant presents the 1st synthesis of the crucial localities during this sector of Western eire, and offers an simply available instruction manual that would advisor the reader to, and inside, a variety 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 advisor summarizes fresh and new paintings within the quarter via a variety of authors and descriptions problems with present debate about the Shannon Basin and its palaeoenvironmental interpretation. the sphere advisor will locate vast use in educating and examine via educational researchers, specialist and novice geologists, in addition to through utilized geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who use those outcrops as analogues for subsurface reservoirs in lots of parts of the world.
