Caribbean geology Mar 18, 2009
This book is a compendium of papers presented at a technical conference of geologists in Jamaica in 1998, so it is, as of this writing, 11 years out of date. I personally was interested in learning about the plate tectonics of the area prior to traveling there. The first several papers do cover that topic; then the topics go on to other areas such as paleontology, mineralogy, and selected local geology. The content is rather technical, and casual amateur geologists might find it a bit hard sledding. Fortunately, though I am not a professional geologist, I do know enough technical material to find those articles in which I was interested quite readable. But what I really wanted was a Roadside Geology Series type of book for the area, but I'm not holding my breath for one to come out (maybe Puerto Rico & the Virgin Islands someday). I would, however, recommend the book to anyone who finds these geological articles, as described above, of interest.
