Dungeness and Romney Marsh; barrier dynamics and marshland evolution.

Ed. by Antony J. Long et al.

Oxbow Books

Two major studies--the Rye Area Project and the Dungeness Foreland Project--track the ancient changes to these former shorelines and marshland in the late Holocene, in part through radiocarbon dating. This volume presents a detailed analysis of various aspects of the projects, including pollen-based investigations dating during the late Holocene up to c.1000 AD, the process and impact of peat formation and marine inundation, and stratigraphic models derived from deep drilling samples. The volume is heavily illustrated with b&w photos and tables. Oversized: 8.5x12". Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
