Matthew Parkes was a highly respected geologist and good friend to many who knew him in the wider geoscience community. His legacy is his enduring scientific research, published in many popular articles, journals and books.
Matthew was the editor of Irish Journal of Earth Sciences for twenty years, right up to his untimely passing in 2020. The latest volume of IJES serves as a tribute to Matthew and attempts to cover some of the many geoscience topics that fascinated him.
It is our pleasure to invite you to join us at the Royal Irish Academy to celebrate Matthew’s legacy and mark the publication of the special tribute volume of IJES.
