Description :
The Upper Pliocene and Lower Pleistocene succession in the Southern Bight, between 52o and 53o N and 2o and 4o E, contains an upward transition from marine to deltaic and fluviatile sediments. The succession is clearly punctuated by unconformities on seismic profiles, defining the boundaries between six separate seismostratigraphic units with characteristic lithology, seismic facies and fossil assemblages. The total succession describes a history of repeated and widespread marine transgression and regression in the Southern Bight area during the early Pleistocene.
