Geological processes in the British Isles


Unit image

This unit provides an introduction to the processes that have shaped the evolution of the Earth, with many detailed examples from the geology of the British Isles. These are studied through the use of the British Geological Survey bedrock geology maps. This unit also helps to give a theoretical foundation for any students considering the residential school for the SXR260 The geological history of the British Isles course, based in the north of England.

This unit is from our archive and is an adapted extract from The geographical history of the British Isles (SXR260) which is no longer taught by The Open University.
