THE LATE PLIOCENE MARINE FORMATION AT ST ERTH, CORNWALL

By G. F. Mitchell

Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Vol. 266 No. 874

(Second hand copy)
 

The long-abandoned sand and clay pits at St Erth in Cornwall have attracted considerable scientific interest and controversy for over a century.​​​​​​​  It is a famous site for its sequence of Late Pliocene marine sediments, which contain an exceptionally diverse assemblage of fossils. It also provides evidence relating to the evolution of S.W. England, former sea-levels and past environments. Part of the sequence is thought to have been deposited at the same time as the well-known Coralline Crag of Suffolk. ​​​​​​

This is the classic 1973 paper following the first major scientific investigations of the site. ​​​​​​​The sediments and stratigraphy revealed are described, and the results of detailed studies of the fossils (mollusca, foraminifera, ostracoda, and plants) are given.


Published by the Royal Society. 1973.  
​​​​​​​Soft cover. 37 pages. Good condition.
​​​​​​​Ex library copy with library stamps. Black and white photographs and illustrations.
