Terrestrial to Basinal Environments and Structural Geology in South-West England, UK

Course Description:

The outstanding coastal sections of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall in south-west England comprise exceptional exposures of sedimentary rocks deposited in a variety of settings, from fluvial and lacustrine to shallow marine shelfal and deep marine basinal. These rocks represent the most complete exposure of the Upper Carboniferous Culm Basin succession. The exposures also display a diverse range of structural features that provide valuable information about fault geometries and fold development relating to increasing basin extension and later contraction.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Structural Geology, Clastic Reservoir Geology or Basin Analysis.
