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