Rocks of Lower Carboniferous age are widely developed across Europe. Apart from their instrinsic geological interest, they are hosts to major Zn-Pb-Cu-Ba deposits in Ireland and Au-FeS2 deposits in the Iberian Pyrite Belt. Further, the Upper Palaeozoic rocks of Europe are increasingly becoming the target of oil and gas exploration. The wealth of data on Lower Carboniferous rocks,while not guaranteeing success, will be an invaluable tool for exploration, 

This book brings together in one volume advances over the last decade in several specialist subdisciplines of geology. It contains papers on carbonate and clastic sedimentology, palaeontology, palaeoecology, stratigraphy and biostratigraphy,
