About this book

This book is intended to be the most complete and up-to-date guide to the geology and fossils of the New Forest National Park in southern England, providing a wealth of information of interest to both the amateur fossil collector and the professional geologist. It includes some 200 field photographs, palaeogeographic maps, digitised borehole/outcrop logs, and geological cross sections.

Also included is a tour of the regional geological evolution of southern England since the Permian Period (~280 million years ago), based on deep boreholes and coastal exposures, including the world-famous Jurassic coast of Dorset and east Devon. The author discusses the petroleum geology of southern England and the New Forest and gives a detailed overview of the stratigraphy of the Hampshire Basin, followed by related aspects of economic geology within this area, including ironstones, freshwater aquifers, geothermal energy, sand, clay and peat resources.

Finally, there is an up-to-date and complete account of the principal fossil localities, together with a comprehensive gallery of photographs with accompanying descriptions of the most abundant fossils within the New Forest National Park.
