An Excursion Guide to the Moine Geology of the Northern Highlands of Scotland: Geology of the Northern Highlands of Scotland
Edited by Rob Strachan; Edited by Ian Alsop; Edited by Cla Fri; Edited by Clark Friend; Edited by Suzanne Miller
This new edition is a co-publication between NMS Enterprises – Publishing and the Edinburgh Geological Society. It has been expanded and redesigned and has a practical flexi-binding. The book describes the varied rocks and structures that occur within the largely metasediments of the Moine Supergroup of the northern and central highlands of Scotland. The excursions are, for the most part, along major roads, allowing easy access to some of the finest outcrops of deformed and metamorphosed sandstones in Scotland. Professional geologists will find the book invaluable as will the enthusiastic amateur and the undergraduate student.
Rob Strachan is Head of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Portsmouth. Ian Alsop is Reader in Structural Geology at the University of Aberdeen. Clark Friend specialises in the application of geo-chronology to dating major metamorphic and crust-forming events. Suzanne Miller spent 12 years with National Museums Scotland where she was Keeper of Natural Sciences. She is currently Director of the South Australian Museum, Adelaide, Australia
