Previous outcrop studies have described a much thinner Ross section at Inishcorker and Foynes (over 50 km east of the Ross type section on the Loop Head) involving only the youngest Ross cycles in the west. A re-interpretation of the inner Shannon outcrops is now possible given a new GSI 09/04 borehole in the Inishcorker area, a re-analysis of Foynes Island sections and new biostratigraphic data||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Ross Formation;Biostratigraphy||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||IAS Annual Meeting, 20 - 24 June 2015|
