• The use and abuse of RIGS sites

      Burek, Cynthia V.; Chester College of Higher Education (Association of UK RIGS Groups (UKRIGS), 2000)
      The classification of geological sites for conservation management purposes can lead to, what some people might regard as abuse of sites. The difference between true abuse of geologically conserved sites and percieved abuse is explored in order to encourage a holistic approach to site management and conservation. Examples are taken from RIGS sites in north Wales.
