... vegetation from Phurt. The radiocarbon dates for the middle peat fit into the Neolithic phase and although all the in situ artifacts are from layers above the peat from a sandy palaeosol, these layers are likely to have been deposited rapidly after the peat formation. Although the artifacts are Middle...

A sequence of deposits which records the Flandrian transgression is preserved in the backbarrier areas of south-central Long Island. The vertical sequence of these trangressive...

... of the American East Coast when, i another portion, a mineral-dominated one has arisen. Regarding southern Britain, we may ask why today s marshes are wholly minerogenic, whereas in mid-Flandrian times ubstantial peats repeatedly arose (e.g. Murray & Hawkins 1976). This note suggests, from a consideration...

... of the sediment. The characteristics of a silty sand deposited during a period of rapid sea level rise and overlain by a laminated mud/silty sand sequence with occasional peat horizons are discussed. A proposed description for laminae thickness is presented. Bioturbation may modify the sediment character of tidal...

... restrictions. The differences in the physical settings of similar depositional environments, even within a limited area, and the large number of factors prevent a simple correlation between sediment type and environment. The problem of relating sediment to environment is largely resolved when only...

...A. Marsland Summary The flood plain of the tidal Thames is underlain with soft clays, peats, silts and sands which in turn rest on gravel. These deposits vary in thickness from a few to tens of metres. As with all soft deposits considerable care is required in order to obtain good quality samples...
