The dominantly nonmarine Solent Group of the Hampshire Basin, southern England, spans the Late Eocene and earliest Oligocene. It contains a rich biota, including mammals and charophytes, but contains few fully marine, time-diagnostic intervals. Correlation with standard marine successions is provided here using bio-stratigraphically significant mammals and charophytes via interdigitation of strata with those containing marine zonal indicators or via magnetostratigraphy in other parts of Europe. This allows the re-identification of recently described normal polarity intervals in the Solent Group to magnetochrons C16n, 15n, 13r1n, and 13n, and improved calibration of the Solent Group to the geomagnetic polarity time scale...
