The Tellus team is pleased to announce the publication of ‘Unearthed: Impacts of the Tellus surveys of the north of Ireland’, a book showcasing the outcomes of recent Tellus surveys. Between 2004 and 2013, €15 million of government and EU funding was spent on high-resolution, airborne geophysical and geochemical sampling surveys of Northern Ireland and the six northern counties of the Republic of Ireland. This book presents some of the findings of the first two stages of Tellus, the largest collaborative cross-border programme of geoscience surveys ever undertaken on the island of Ireland.
‘Unearthed: impacts of the Tellus surveys of the north of Ireland details how this unprecedented land and air survey of hidden Ireland rewards us with a more complete understanding of the natural history of this region. It tells an epic story of how Ireland’s geological past will sustain its future’.
- Professor Iain Stewart MBE
The book is authored by a cross-border team of geoscientists including government and industry scientists and research institution investigators who have worked on Tellus data over the last decade.
The book is published by the Royal Irish Academy and available to buy at the Geological Survey of Ireland’s online shop.
