GA Guide Number 54
The Aberystwyth Grits and Borth Mudstones (Silurian) are magnificently exposed in accessible cliffs along the coastline of Cardigan Bay, and are world-famous as classic examples of turbidity current deposition. But the region is also known for the variety of its glacial landforms and modern sedimentary environments. Nineteen itineraries are described in detail, the first eight dealing with the variations in the turbidite fan succession between New Quay in the south and Harp Rock in the north. The rest cover the Dovey Estuary, the Quaternary, and solid geology of Cardigan Bay and the Plynlimon area. A glossary is included.
