Geomorphology South East England and the Ice Ages. The northern hemisphere has been in the grip of a series of “ice ages” during the last My. Britain has been near or at the southern edge of successive glaciations, though evidence for the early phases has mostly been obliterated by subsequent advances of ice Size: 6MB.

Kent is the south-easternmost county in England. It is bounded on the north by the River Thames and the North Sea, and on the south by the Straits of Dover and the English continent of Europe is a mere 21 miles across the Strait. The major geographical features of the county are determined by a series of ridges running from west to east across the county.

Much of what is now Britain became emergent during the early Palaeogene the maximum uplift occurring in the north-west, causing a regional tilt towards the east and south-east.

We note that modelling of uplift farther north in southern England, in the Middle and Lower reaches of the Thames, indicates ∼60 m of surface uplift since the late Early Pleistocene, at a time-averaged rate of ∼ mm a −1 (Westaway et al., ).

This study contrasts the Late Quaternary. The High Weald is an unusually well-wooded area in southern England. A high proportion of this woodland is ancient, being formerly exploited as seasonal pasture and coppice.

By combining sites with small and large pollen source areas, both local and Cited by: A weald once meant a dense forest, especially the famous great wood once stretching far beyond the ancient counties of Sussex and Kent, England, where this country of smaller woods is still called "the Weald".
