Abstract

Volume 26 of the Geological Conservation Review series, British Middle Jurassic Stratigraphy, describes over 100 Middle Jurassic Geological Conservation Review sites, from the Dorset coast to the Inner Hebrides off the north-west coast of Scotland, and covers about 20 million years of Earth history from about 160 to 180 million years ago.

Together, the site descriptions provide a representative picture of much of the British Middle Jurassic succession, which is characterized by sedimentary rock types reflecting a wide variety of shallow marine, saltmarsh, lagoonal, deltaic and fluvial depositional environments.

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 – General introduction to the Aalenian to Callovian stratigraphy of Great Britain
  • Chapter 2 – The Middle Jurassic stratigraphy of Wessex
  • Chapter 3 – The Middle Jurassic stratigraphy of the Cotswolds
  • Chapter 4 – The Middle Jurassic stratigraphy of the East Midlands
  • Chapter 5 – The Middle Jurassic stratigraphy of North Yorkshire
  • Chapter 6 – The Middle Jurassic stratigraphy of Scotland
  • References, Glossary, Fossil Index and General Index

Please note: this volume has been produced from a scan of an original document. You may therefore experience fluctuations in quality.
