About this book

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 describes seventy 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 Cheviots, Pennines, the Lake District, Peak District, North Yorkshire Moors and all 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, sea level fluctuations, the effects of climate change on the flora and fauna and the impact of man in the Holocene on vegetation and river processes of Northern England. This book provides an invaluable resource for those interested in the British Quaternary and its associated climatic change, together with a comprehensive bibliography on the subject.
