Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0412488302, Hardcover)This volume 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 elsehwere in Britain, on the European continent and on the ocean floor.
The ocean floor deposits are particularly important as the deep sea record is practically unbroken and can be used as a standard for global correlation. Quaternary of the Thames prepresents the first systematic attempt to relate the Thames sequence to this global oceanic record. This reinterpretation brinfgs the Thames into line with many other areas of Britain and the European continent, underlining the unique importance of the Thames sequence within the British Quaternary, and will be warmly welcomed by many workers in the field.
