Chapters on marine geology and geophysics are new syntheses for the entire Caribbean region. Highlights of the volume include extensive bibliographies and new syntheses of stratigraphic-lithologic columnar sections, seismicity, gravity and magnetic anomalies, neotectonic features, resource data, and crustal properties.

Professor Trevor Jackson’s academic career was grounded in igneous geology with a strong focus on the Antillean region of the Caribbean. Such a career path was surely projected based on his master’s degree on the geology and petrology of the volcanic rocks of Carriacou, Grenadines () followed by his doctorate on the petrochemistry and origin of the Tertiary volcanic.
