Memoir 16

*** Limited quantities remaining 

To celebrate the publication of Volume 150 of Journal of the Geological Society, leading geologists were invited to present their personal views on significant topics that had been brought to the fore in earlier contributions to the Journal, to evaluate the evidence presented and to give their view of how these seminal papers affected our present understanding of geological processes, and further to hazard where future paths of investigation may lie. In addition, the first chapter, by Rudwick, sets the scene on why the Geological Society of London rated so highly the publication of geological observation. He recounts the creation of the Journal, and how it survived growing pains to become a leading international journal.
