Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


During the last few years a number of temporary exposures of Chalk and Quaternary sediments have been created by building work on the University of East Anglia campus in west Norwich. One of the largest of these was created during excavation of the footings for the ZICER (Zuckerman Institute for Connective Environmental Research) building (NGR TG 194 075) in 2001/2, where about 3 metres of Chalk were exposed, overlain by a further 2-3 metres of Quaternary sands and gravels. This short note records 1) the likely stratigraphic context of the exposure 2) the fossils recovered and 3) the contact between the Chalk and Quaternary sediments.
