An excellent book for UK stratigraphy Aug. 31 2005
By CL Perry - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because it was reccomended by one of my stratigraphy lecturers. Normally I buy some of the textbooks I need for my course and then never look at them again because I find the lecture notes are adequate. This book was so good though that I used it almost all the time.

The maps and diagrams are very clear so it's easy to understand what they show and they offer a visual summary of the information contained in each chapter. The book covers a different geological age or an event (such as the Variscan Orogeny) in separate chapters. Each chapter provides detailed information on the different types of rocks that were formed and their characteristics, and the environment they were formed in. My only difficulty with this book is that it can be quite hard to use if you are looking for something specific because the text can jump around in places, but if you're taking a course in UK stratigraphy or palaeoenvironments then I reccomend this book fully.

It's not an easy book to read or even refer to. But it does cover everything. Not for the faint hearted
