ABSTRACT The Trwyn y Parc solution pipes on the Isle of Anglesey, Wales, UK are one of only three onshore Miocene fossil flora bearing sites. Here, we revise the palynostratigraphy and present new palaeoclimate data for this geoheritage site. By comparison to palynological data from northern Europe the age has been refined from Miocene to Middle Miocene, possibly Langhian. This is confirmed by palaeoclimate reconstructions comparable to the German Middle Miocene, especially the Langhian after…

The Brassington Formation is the most extensive Miocene sedimentary succession onshore in the UK. Because of its unique position at the margin of NW Europe, the pollen from this lithostratigraphical

The Oligocene and Miocene Outliers of West Cornwall and their Bearing on the Geomorphological Evolution of Oldland Britain

The prolonged morphodynamic stability of the region, as established in this paper, has important consequences for the interpretation of landscape evolution elsewhere in areas of Oldland (i.e. post-Armorican) western Europe, especially where datable Tertiary deposits have yet to be recognized.

Chattian and Miocene elements in the modern landscape of western Britain and Ireland

Abstract The best preserved denudation surfaces which are benched into the margins of the pre-Permian oldland massifs of western Britain and Ireland are those comparatively close to sea-level. Such

The Palynostratigraphy of the Brassington Formation (Upper Miocene) of the Southern Pennines, Central England

The Brassington Formation of Derbyshire and Staffordshire in the southern Pennine hills of central England is a succession of sands, gravels and clays preserved within karstic cavities in

Palynology of Lower Oligocene brown coal and lowermost Middle Miocene sand deposits from the Łukowa-4 borehole (Carpathian Foredeep, SE Poland) – implications for palaeogeographical reconstructions

Brown coal and overlying sand strata from the Łukowa-4 borehole, located in the northeastern sector of the Carpathian Foredeep in Poland, were studied for palynology. These strata are underlain by

A reassessment of the Brassington Formation (Miocene) of Derbyshire, UK and a review of related hypogene karst suffosion processes

The Brassington Formation of the Pennines is the most extensive onshore Miocene succession in the UK. It is preserved as outliers in Lower Carboniferous Limestone. During the Cenozoic, central

Middle Miocene Palynoflora from the Adamów Lignite Deposit, Central Poland

ABSTRACT The first mid-Polish group is the youngest among the main Neogene lignite seams in Poland. Lignites of this group developed in the middle Miocene over almost the whole of Poland, and
