AbstractThis field guide has been carried out to fulfil part of the requirements of my master’s degree in the field of Applied Geosciences at the University of Hong Kong. The project was mainly written from September 2012 to July 2013 under the supervision of Dr. Jason R. Ali. The objective of the study was to produce a simple, easily understood, geological guide of areas on eastern and central Lantau Island. The guide intends to introduce useful, fundamental concepts of geomorphology and geology to everyone who visits the selected study areas. Data has been obtained by a literature survey, interpretation of aerial photographs, use of geological and topographic maps and much fieldwork. The information is presented in the form of a simple field guide divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 is the introduction, while Chapter 2 presents background information of the geology of Lantau Island and Chapter 3 is the actual field guide divided into two areas, east Lantau and central Lantau. Chapter 4 concludes this dissertation. It is concluded that Lantau Island exhibits many interesting landscapes and geological features. This field guide provides convenient and easy to understand information for any person, professional or amateur, having an interest in understanding their surroundings (the physical environment) when visiting Lantau Island.
