What is this site about?

Regional geology deals with the geological history, the rocks and the tectonic structures of individual regions of the world. Scales vary and "regions" may include whole continents, countries, or smaller parts of a country. Many geologists work in more than one "region", partly because they deliberateley expand their investigations to other regions because of pure interest, but partly also because the job makes it necessary to cover larger parts of the world. Also hobby geologists and nature lovers will often direct their holidays to different regions of teh world to sample a wider range of geological provinces and phenomena.

When starting any geological task in a new region, the first step must always be to try and understand the regional geology of that area. For many regions excellent textbooks exist; superb overview papers in journals help to understand the main geological developments; useful websites can be found on the internet that give a good introduction; videos on DVD explain the geology and the resulting landscapes in userfriendly multimedia formats; excursions are being offered that allow intense, hands-on experiences in the field.

But finding the (best) resources is not always easy. Often valuable resources are overlooked. This site aims to give a comprehensive overview of regional geology resources. To give you a jump start in your new projects.
