By Peter Coxon, Stephen McCarron, Fraser Mitchell

This ebook presents a brand new synthesis of the broadcast study at the Quaternary of eire. It reports a couple of major advances within the final 3 a long time at the figuring out of the trend and chronology of the Irish Quaternary glacial, interglacial, floristic and profession files. these utilizing the newest know-how have enabled major advances in geochronology utilizing speeded up mass spectrometry, cosmogenic nuclide extraction and optically influenced luminescence among others. This has been commensurate with high-resolution geomorphological mapping of the Irish land floor and continental shelf utilizing quite a lot of distant sensing strategies together with MBES and LIDAR. therefore the time is perfect for a cutting-edge ebook, which supplies a chain of authoritative experiences of the Irish Quaternary incorporating those most modern advances.

Karst landscapes in non-glaciated regions are often characterised as much by relatively small scale ‘positive’ landforms, such as residual hills, cones or even towers (Fig. 7), that rise above the general land surface as by the ‘negative’ landforms that extend beneath the surface, and it has been suggested that such features may survive in Ireland as relics from a pre-glacial karst landscape. g. Mitchell 1980; Mitchell et al. 1983; Drew 1997), but is this a reasonable hypothesis? Tower and cone karst are very specific landforms that develop through the interplay of karst Fig.

The Shannon estuary too seems anomalous when compared with the other major coastal re-entrants on the west coast. All of these, such as Galway and Donegal/Sligo bays and, in the south-west, the bays of Tralee, Dingle, Kenmare, Bantry and Dunmanus, show clear lithological and/or structural control. In contrast, the Shannon estuary cuts across a wide outcrop of Carboniferous siliciclastics in which no major geological structures are evident that might have influenced its present course. Herries-Davies (in Herries-Davies and Stephens 1978) ascribed the present course of the Shannon to “the postglacial linkage of a series of glacially-excavated rock basins”.
