Abstract

"This is the first comprehensive study, consisting of integrated petrographical, paleontological and geochemical analyses on the post-Waulsortian strata in the central and southeast Irish Midlands. This study reveals that the style of sedimentation and early diagenesis substantially influenced the late diagenesis, and the characteristics of Zn-Pb mineralization in the Rathdowney Trend. The study also demonstrates the fundamental difference in the style of sedimentation and tectonic history between the basins in the Irish Midlands and the Wexford Outlier."--Abstract, page iii.
