This latest memoir chronicles the geology of the Kingston-upon-Hull and Brigg areas of Humberside and north Lincolnshire, an area renowned for its natural resources. This new data, derived from comprehensive surveying of fully cored boreholes, should enable a better assessment of the existing resources of the region and will facilitate land-use planning. In addition a clearer understanding of the Quaternary succession giving a more complete picture of climatic and relative sea-level change over the past 2 million years will aid forecasting of the likely impact on Britain of future global change.
