The Clare Shale - Basal Ross Formation Contact, Western Ireland - New Insight from Behind-Outcrop Cores

2015-02-21, Obradors-Latre, Arnau, Pierce, Colm, Haughton, Peter D. W., Shannon, Patrick M., et al.

A recent behind - outcrop drilling program targeting the Ross Formation has focussed on the Loop Head peninsula in west Clare. This has provided a fully-cored composite Ross section (490 m thick) that underpins a new understanding of bed-scale variability and the vertical evolution of the system . The work programme h as now been broadened to include the key Ballybunion section on the south side of the Shannon which sits obliquely down-dip (to the east) of Loop Head (c. 18 km away).

Down-dip Termination of Sandy Fan Systems - New Insight from the Pennsylvanian Ross Sandstone Formation, Western Ireland

2015-12-22, Obradors-Latre, Arnau, Pierce, Colm, Haughton, Peter D. W., Shannon, Patrick M., et al.

New and legacy borehole constraints and outcrop work on the eastward extension of the Ross Formation help constrain the down-dip character of the fan stack.
