Age determinations of Neogene sediments from the English Channel and Western Approaches

D. Graham Jenkins and Erlend Martini

Abstract. Original published evidence indicated an age range of early Lower Miocene to early Middle Miocene for Globigerina silt samples from the English Channel and the Western Approaches. Suggested younger ages for these samples are refuted on the basis of planktonic foraminifera and calcareous nannoplankton.
