Deepwater Kilclogher Cliffs Shannon Estuary
Kilclogher Cliffs Ross Formation Deepwater Fan Sheets
Outcrops on north shore of the Shannon Estuary between Rehy Cliffs to the east and Kilbaha Bay to the west illustrating the character of the deepwater sediments of the Ross Formation. Here the Ross Formation section is a mix of deepwater fan lobes exhibiting sparse shallow channeling.
The photographs in this gallery were taken by Christopher Kendall, and Peter Haughton. We extend our special thanks to Geoff McGee, the skipper of the vessel Draiocht out of Carrigaholt harbor on the northern flank of the Shannon Estuary in Co-Clare, who transported us to many of the various localities featured in our photographs on two trips, one being the Field Trip Associated with the SEPM in 2008 (Martinsen et al.,2008).
