The Quaternary of Scotland by J. E Gordon ( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In describing the geomorphological heritage of Scotland, this volume offers a remarkable account of how the natural environment responded in terms of landforms, processes and plant communities, to severe climatic change as the Quaternary era progressed over the last two million years. This legacy, as preserved in the 138 nationally important GCR sites described, documents a remarkable diversity of landforms in a relatively small area. The rugged highland contrast with the rolling hills and flat plains found further south, while the western and northern islands, together with the highly-indented coastline add further to the scenic diversity. How this variety of landscapes came into being, the forces which shaped it, and the climatic extremes which drove it, are the themes explored in this volume

Quaternary of the Thames by D. R Bridgland ( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume describes important sites in the Pleistocene (ice age) deposits of the Thames terrace system which were laid down by the Thames and its tributaries during the many (alternating) cold and warm episodes of the Pleistocene. Considerable attention is devoted to correlating the Thames sequence with deposits found elsehwere in Britain, on the European continent and on the ocean floor. The ocean floor deposits are particularly important as the deep sea record is practically unbroken and can be used as a standard for global correlation. Quaternary of the Thames prepresents the first systematic attempt to relate the Thames sequence to this global oceanic record. This reinterpretation brinfgs the Thames into line with many other areas of Britain and the European continent, underlining the unique importance of the Thames sequence within the British Quaternary, and will be warmly welcomed by many workers in the field
