In contrast with much of the British Isles, south-west England was likely not glaciated during the Quaternary era (last 1.8 Ma) (Stephens, 1970; Bowen et al., 1986; Scourse, 1996; Cullingford, 1998; Clark et al., 2004). Although, therefore, unaffected directly by the sediment generation and erosion processes associated with glacial action, this also meant that it was unaffected by the presence of regional stratigraphic unconformities, formed during ice advance, which have the unfortunate effect… Expand
PERIGLACIAL BEDROCK FEATURES OF THE LIZARD PENINSULA AND SURROUNDING AREA
Hitherto, Quaternary studies in Cornwall have largely focussed on the coastal raised beaches, overlying head and loess deposits (James, 1995; Campbell et al., 1998). Little attention has been paid toExpand
The limitations of Quaternary lithostratigraphy: an example from southern Ireland
Abstract The lithostratigraphy of Quaternary extra-glacial (cold-climate) sediments is described from five sites along the south coast of Ireland. These sediments are compared to a regional-scaleExpand
Chapter 5 Periglacial and permafrost ground models for Great Britain
Abstract Periglacial environments are characterized by cold-climate non-glacial conditions and ground freezing. The coldest periglacial environments in Pleistocene Britain were underlain byExpand
Chapter 3 Geomorphological framework: glacial and periglacial sediments, structures and landforms
Abstract The development of the conceptual ground model (CGM) is a critical component of any desk study or ground engineering project planning process. A key task of the engineering geologist is toExpand
Chapter 13 Hazards associated with mining and mineral exploitation in Cornwall and Devon, SW England
Abstract The largest UNESCO World Heritage Site in the UK is found in Cornwall and west Devon, and its designation is based specifically on its heritage for metalliferous mining, especially tin,Expand
