Abstract The stratigraphical position of the Cambridge Greensand is confirmed as lowermost Cenomanian and the hiatus at the Albian/Cenomanian boundary described from a number of localities in SE England and East Anglia. The various sedimentary packages in the uppermost Albian and lowermost Cenomanian record a series of sea-level changes, confirmed by the changes in the foraminiferal assemblages (and other microfossils). The historical disagreements between the stratigraphical interpretations of…

The great transgressions of the Late Cretaceous
During the Late Cretaceous (94–64 Ma) sea level was up to 650 m higher than at the start of the Albian, when it was perhaps about the same as it is today. Facies analysis in both the Western Interior
