Quaternary of Northern England
GCR Volume No. 25
Huddart, D. and Glasser, N.F.
This book provides an invaluable resource for those interested in the British Quaternary record in northern England and evidence for associated climatic changes.


The Quaternary is a time of rapid and major climatic change that has had a significant role in shaping the natural landscape of northern England. This volume contains 78 accounts of Geological Conservation Review sites that collectively hold the key to understanding how these climatic changes affected the natural environment of this area, which includes the Cheviot Hills, the Pennines, the Lake District, the Peak District, the North Yorkshire Moors and all of the surrounding lowland areas. The volume includes discussion of the evidence for Tertiary and Early Pleistocene landscape evolution, for glacial and periglacial landforming processes and stratigraphy, for sea-level fluctuations, and for the effects of climate change on the flora and fauna. The impact of man in the Holocene on vegetation and river processes of northern England is also considered at particular sites.
