... of the Solent River ( Reid 1902) was developed by Nicholls (1987), who suggested that the River Solent lost its River Frome headwaters in an episode no later than the Devensian, through the westernmost (I) of the three southward sloping sea‐bed channels now identified by Velegrakis et al. (1999). The other...

...A. F. VELEGRAKIS; J. K. DIX; M. B. COLLINS Abstract Geological evidence suggests that during the Late Quaternary, a river system (the Solent River) drained a large part of central Southern England. Its upper reaches flowed in a west-east direction, flanked to the south by a Chalk ridge (the Purbeck...

Particular emphasis is placed upon short-term fluvial activity (the context for assemblage formation) and the long-term potential for preservation and erosion of fluvial terraces and their archaeological contents. Case study examples are presented for the Solent River...

Viscoelastic plate models suggest that the uplift is initially rapid (up to 8 m ka −1 ) and essentially complete within 50 ka. These initial rates are compatible with an early post-Anglian incision rate...
