The Subsoils of Northern Ireland

The paper describes the subsoils of Northern Ireland, the majority of which are of glacial origin. The formation of these glacial materials is outlined and geotechnical properties of typical subsoils are given. The significance of a knowledge of glacial geology to the practice of foundation engineering in Northern Ireland is stressed. Professor I.G. Doran
