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).||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Ross Formation;Ballybunion;Core samples||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Irish Geological Research Annual Meeting, NUI Galway, Galway, Ireland, 19 - 21 February 2015|
