About this book

This 660-page volume is the third compilation of the geological knowledge of Tasmania prepared as a volume sponsored by the Geological Society of Australia, Tasmania Division.

The ten chapters in Geological Evolution of Tasmania have been arranged in such a way as to give the reader a reasonably chronological view of Tasmania's geological evolution, with the major tectonic, magmatic and mineralisation events placed in their order of occurrence. In addition, a simplified account of the geology, and of the geological history, written for the interested layman, has been added to make Geological Evolution of Tasmania more accessible to the general reader.
