Special Publication 95.

This volume contains a selection of 16 papers written by colleagues and students of the late Professor John Sutton FRS. 

John Sutton was one of the most eminent geologists of his time. He was interested in every aspect of the Earth Sciences, although his passion was for Precambrian rocks throughout the world, and particularly those of NW Scotland. 

The papers included in this volume reflect the wide interests of John Sutton and provide the latest ideas and information on the Early Precambrian.
