Quaternary (/ k w ə ˈ t ɜːr n ə r i, ˈ k w ɒ t. ər ˌ n ɛr. i / kwə-TUR-nə-ree, KWOT-ər-nerr-ee) is the current and most recent of the three periods of the Cenozoic Era in the geologic time scale of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS). It follows the Neogene Period and spans from ± million years ago to the present. The Quaternary Period is divided into.

  The term Quaternary originated early in the 19th century when it was applied to the youngest deposits in the Paris Basin in France by French geologist Jules Desnoyers, who followed an antiquated method of referring to geologic eras as “Primary,” “Secondary,” “Tertiary,” and so ing with the work of Scottish geologist Charles Lyell in the s, the Quaternary Period was. Older Quaternary estuarine sediments are also present, at heights above that reached by the Holocene sea, being related to trangressions probably of Ipswichian age. These interglacial deposits show evidence of reworking, around their margins, by the Holocene sea.

As a result, the Quaternary geology of the North Sea also holds key evidence for understanding the discharge and stability, and extent, of the major northern European palaeo-ice masses, in particular the British and Irish (BIIS), and Fennoscandian (FIS) ice sheets.

This chapter provides an overview of the Quaternary sediments of the North Sea. The base of the Quaternary rarely forms an identifiable seismic marker except adjacent to land, where relatively unconsolidated Pleistocene deposits commonly overstep the Tertiary on to harder pre-Tertiary by: 5.

The study uses the continuous PGS central and southern North Sea and 3D seismic MegaSurveys with a subsampled bin size of 50 m and a sampling rate of 4 ms two-way travel time (TWT) to map the deepest part of the Quaternary North Sea Basin.

In areas not covered by the MegaSurvey, regional 2D seismic lines were used to resolve the basin by: 7. today. Deposits laid down on a valley floor, for example, may now lie on a plateau top following changes of sea level and uplift of the ’ crust. The Quaternary deposits are described in eight major groupings: glacial, periglacial, aeolian, fluviatile, lacustrine, estuarine, marine, and karst.

central and northern North Sea the spreads of soft muds are locally characterised by small depressions or ‘pockmarks’, most of which appear to have been formed at times of fluid escape. Download quaternary geology or read online books in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, and Mobi Format.

The eastern end of the London Basin merges with the basin of the North Sea, extending on land along the north Kent coast to Reculver and up the east coast of Essex and into Suffolk, where it is overlain by Pleistocene 'Crag' deposits which cover much of eastern Suffolk and Norfolk and are better considered as part of the North Sea basin.

The North Sea has had a long and complex geological history, with its present-day structural configuration being largely the result of Late Jurassic–Early Cretaceous rifting, followed by thermal cooling and subsidence (Glennie and Underhill,Zanella and Coward, ).During the Cenozoic, the basin was gently deformed by tectonic inversion and basin-margin uplift driven by intraplate.

Most of the catchment is covered by Middle and Upper Carboniferous sediments overlaid by friable Quaternary deposits (Pakhtusova ). The Quaternary deposits are represented mainly by glacial and water–glacial formations of different age. The catchment encompasses the Belozersk plain and is transected by two undulating ridges in the shape of arcs.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Stoker, M.S. Revised Quaternary stratigraphy for the central North Sea. London: H.M.S.O., (OCoLC)Due to major uplift and Quaternary glacial erosion of the Norwegian mainland, thick sequences were deposited into the North Sea during the Neogene.

This led to burial of the Jurassic source rocks to depths where hydrocarbons could be generated and the seals were effective.
