Describes important sites in the Pleistocene 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 elsewhere 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. This volume represents the first systematic attempt to relate the Thames sequence to this global oceanic record. This reinterpretation brings 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.
