This volume describes over 100 Middle Jurassic Geological Conservation Review sites, from the Dorset coast to the Inner Hebrides off the north-west coast of Scotland.

Summary

This volume 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.
 
Arranged geographically, the site descriptions are divided between five chapters (Wessex, Cotswolds, East Midlands, North Yorkshire and Scotland), each of which has an introductory section placing the sites in spatial and stratigraphical context. The volume thereby provides an up-to-date review of the AalenianCallovian stratigraphy of Britain, calling on the extensive literature of over 150 years. It is generously illustrated with line-drawings and photographs and contains an extensive bibliograpy.
