This completely revised edition has been rewritten to reflect the major changes in knowledge since the first edition. There are four additional chapters, on geological pioneers, engineering geology, environmental geology and off-shore geology. The Geology of Devon also lists all official and local sites of geological and geomorphological interest, includes an expanded reference list and a colour geological map. It is aimed at all readers with an amateur or professional interest in geology, and undergraduate fieldworkers should find The Geology of Devon particularly helpful.
Eric Durrance is Emeritus Professor of Geology, University of Nebraska. Deryck Laming is a consultant geologist based in Exeter. Brian Selwood is Senior Lecturer in Earth Science, University of Exeter.
