Fortey, D. Harper, J. Keith Ingham. At the time of the report on Cambrian correlation by Cowie et al. (), the pre-Ordovician rocks of Anglesey, the ‘Mona Complex’, were generally accepted as being of Precambrian age. Radical re-interpretation of the Mona Complex followed from palaeontological evidence reported by Muir et al.

() and from a plate-tectonic evaluation by Barber & Max (), and since then strong evidence. This Special Report comprehensively describes the stratigraphy and correlation of the Tertiary (Paleogene-Neogene) rocks of NW Europe and the adjacent Atlantic Ocean and is the summation of fifty years of research on Tertiary sediments by Chris King.

His book is essential reading for all geologists who deal with Tertiary rocks across NW Europe, including those in the petroleum industry and. Description This is a revised and expanded edition from the publication due to subsequent research in the post plate tectonic era, providing an up to the minute account of the British Ordovician formation and their correlation nationally and internationally.

Here, the plate tectonic make-up of the British Isles is reviewed, new radiometric ages and isotopic studies are summarized and the biostratigraphy is enhanced by the study of acritarchs, especially in the Irish successions A Revised Correlation of the Cambrian Rocks in the British Isles ISBN.

This work reviews the correlation of the British and Irish Cambrian with the current (though incomplete) international standard for the Cambrian.
