The ‘Late Jurasic’ stratigraphy of the Dutch Central North Sea Graben is revised. The sediments, ranging in age from Callovian to Ryazanian, are grouped in two lithological units: the mainly non-marine Central Graben Group (with Lower Graben Sand, Middle Graben Shale, Upper Graben Sand, Puzzle Hole, and Delfland formations) and the distinct marine Scruff Group (with Kimmeridge Cited by: The thickest and most complete sequence (more than m) is preserved in the Central Graben of the North Sea, which has subsided tectonically throughout the Quaternary.

At least ten till units are present within the Norwegian Channel with six or seven extending to the distal shelf break (Sejrup et al., ).

Definition of Quaternary. The Subcommission of Quaternary Stratigraphy has published their proposed definition in the Journal of Quaternary Science (, p. ): Formal ratification of the Quaternary System/Period and the Pleistocene Series/Epoch with a base at Ma.

Subsequently, we were able to revise the Mid to Late Quaternary stratigraphy for the North Sea using this new and novel data. Similarly, Holocene environmental changes were investigated within the Irish Sea at a depositional site with active anthropogenic : Mark J.

T he Quaternary evolution of the North Sea and the English Channel is a history of change of drainage systems, and the interaction of these drainage systems with glaciation, sea level. The study uses the continuous PGS central and southern North Sea and 3D seismic MegaSurveys with a subsampled bin size of 50 m and a sampling rate of 4 ms two-way travel time (TWT) to map the deepest part of the Quaternary North Sea Basin.

In areas not covered by the MegaSurvey, regional 2D seismic lines were used to resolve the basin by: 7.

The onset of the Quaternary ( Ma) corresponds to significant paleo-environmental events, such as the intensification and southward extension of Northern Hemisphere glaciation.

In the North Sea Basin a significant late Cenozoic succession has been identified as a high-resolution archive of paleo-environmental changes during the Pliocene and Pleistocene. However, the identification of the Cited by: 7.
