This booklet offers a brand new synthesis of the broadcast examine at the Quaternary of eire. It reports a few major advances within the final 3 many years at the realizing of the trend and chronology of the Irish Quaternary glacial, interglacial, floristic and career documents. these applying the most recent expertise have enabled major advances in geochronology utilizing speeded up mass spectrometry, cosmogenic nuclide extraction and optically encouraged luminescence among others. This has been commensurate with high-resolution geomorphological mapping of the Irish land floor and continental shelf utilizing a variety of distant sensing suggestions together with MBES and LIDAR. therefore the time is perfect for a state-of-the-art e-book, which supplies a chain of authoritative experiences of the Irish Quaternary incorporating those latest advances.

Example text

Ireland’s other large lakes are all located at least partly on Carboniferous limestones and consequently Hull (1891), p. 230 attributed their formation to dissolution. This possibility was discounted by Charlesworth (1963) who considered that all of Ireland’s lakes, other than Lough Neagh and the turloughs, originated by ice action either directly through erosion or as a consequence of glacial deposition. He noted that the deepest parts of Lower Lough Erne and Lough Derg (on the Shannon) are located on silicate rocks rather than limestone, while Lough Mask is much deeper on its western side, adjacent to silicates, than on the limestone beneath its eastern side.

Still further south, around the southern part of Tralee Bay, Co Kerry, a number of small steep-sided limestone hills have, on occasion, been compared with tower karst landscapes in parts of Asia (Waltham 2008) and considered as relics of a Cenozoic landscape (Mitchell 1980; Davies 1970). For Dunamase and the Barrow-Fenit area of Tralee Bay at least, there is evidence from boreholes and geophysics that the true relief on some of these limestone hills is significantly greater than is apparent today (George Sevastopulo, pers.

1980). Although surprisingly shallow today, mostly less than 10 m, this may be a consequence of glacial lowering of the outlets—via the River Bann to the north and perhaps, at an earlier date, a southern outlet near Newry.
