Detailed studies of the rocks enable the geological history and the evolution of the tectonic setting to be deciphered.The large variety of rock types present in Hong Kong reflects the complexity of the geology of the region.These have led to shifts in depositional environments ranging from rivers and deltas, to a warm shallow sea, to a deep continental sea, to a volcanically active continental margin, to an arid, block-faulted, continental terrestrial setting (Figure 1).The oldest rocks in Hong Kong are of late Palaeozoic age and comprise non-marine and shallow marine sedimentary rocks.SYNONYMS OR RELATED TERMS: fiber tempering CATEGORY: ceramics DEFINITION: Any clay pottery to which grass or root fibers have been added as a tempering material.
