Fieldwork in County Clare, Ireland
Our County Clare field course investigates the fill of the Shannon Basin through a series of world class coastal outcrops. Starting on black Clare shales we climb the Shannon clastic margin from a basin floor fan system, through unstable slopes to an overlying delta succession
Did you know?Much of the early understanding of the fill of the Shannon Basin succession was accomplished by Ole Martinson during fieldwork for his MSc project!
