... at outcrop using the Neogene–Quaternary Red Crag Formation, England. The Red Crag Formation hosts sedimentological and ichnological proxies that can be used to assess the time taken to accumulate outcrop expressions of strata, as ancient depositional environments fluctuated between states of deposition...

...C. O. HUNT Abstract The basal sands of the Red Crag Formation at Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex, contain a pollen assemblage dominated by Pinus and with pollen of Taxodiaceae and thermophilous trees. This is comparable with assemblages from the Dutch Reuverian ‘ C’ (Late Pliocene). It is not closely...

... is indistinct. Crag features with long tails might have geometries that resemble the classical shape of drumlins, while features sometimes described as ‘rock drumlins’ can, conversely, mirror the geometries of crag-and-tail bedforms. Glaciologically, however, the presence of crag-and-tails implies formation...
