Introduction

This page is to demonstrate the use of the integrated browser with the virtual field tours.

The geological exposures of the Jurassic Coast of North East England cover a variety of depositional systems, from both continental and marine settings, and provide an excellent opportunity for field training. In this virtual field tour, we will visit several localities along the Yorkshire coast.

Locality:

Staithes

The Cleveland Ironstone Formation (Pliensbachian) consists of Mudstone, silty, argillaceous siltstone and silty sandstone. The succession has a series of sideritic and berthierine-ooidal ironstone concretions.

Overview of the succession

Fracturing in the Avicula seam 

Small scale extensional faulting

Whitby West Cliff

Alluvial sandstone of the Saltwick Formation (Aalenian).  The exposures at Whitby comprise multi-storey sand bodies of fine- to medium-grained sandstone deposited in the hanging-wall of the Whitby fault and shows many different geological features at a variety of scales.

Overturned/deformed cross-bedded sandstone.

Saltwick Nab

Fractured mudstones.

Dactylioceras

Hundale Point

Thalassinoides

Rhizocorallium and example 2

Long Nab

The Long Nab Member (Bajocian Age — Bathonian) of the Scalby Formation. Here we will see an exhumed meander plane, usually only visible at low tide, showing both planform and vertical sections.

Complex geometry from point bar deposits

Flamborough Head

the Late Cretaceous Chalks, with extensive faulting and fracturing, marl layers, stylolites and fault breccia.
