This area forms part of a wide continental shelf and extends eastwards to a line from Start Point to the Cotentin Peninsula in the western English Channel, northwards to 51 degrees N, and southwestwards to the upper continental slope. It is the site of pioneering work in marine geology, and the structures and sequences recognized in early, largely geophysical, investigations have generated commercial interest. This search for hydrocarbons in the deep sedimentary basins of the area has produced new information, much of which is included with the BGS results, Deep Sea Drilling Project data and details from a wide variety of papers.
