Volume 7 of the Geological Conservation Review series, the Quaternary of the Thames, provides details and descriptions of the GCR sites that yield evidence for the Quaternary history of the Thames Valley. It describes important sites in the Pleistocene (ice age) deposits of the Thames terrace system which were laid down by the Thames and its tributaries during the many (alternating) cold and warm episodes of the Pleistocene. Considerable attention is devoted to correlating the Thames sequence with deposits found elsewhere in Britain, on the European continent and on the ocean floor.

The contents of the volume include:

  • Prelims – including an introduction to the Geological Conservation Review (GCR) and the list of sites discussed in the volume.
  • Chapter 1 – The Pleistocene of the Thames
  • Chapter 2 – The Upper Thames basin
  • Chapter 3 – The Middle Thames
  • Chapter 4 – The Lower Thames
  • Chapter 5 – Essex
  • References and Index
