This is a revised and expanded edition from the 1972 publication due to subsequent research in the post plate tectonic era, providing an up to the minute account of the British Ordovician formation and their correlation nationally and internationally. The British sections are the type for the Ordovician System and classical in stratigraphical, tectonic and volcanic studies. The Charts bring together thirty years of research over the period in which plate tectonics has revolutionised our understanding of the Lower Palaeozoic of the British Isles. Also includes comprehensive literature of papers published since 1970 and the most comprehensive treatment of Ireland ever attempted. Readership: UK and international stratigraphers, palaeontologists and field geologists researching rock of Ordovician age. Particularly those interested in the Welsh mountains and the Lake District of the UK.
