Abstract

THE Geological Survey of Great Britain produces geological maps distinguishing strata with particular lithological characters and ages ; thus Chalk is singled out from other limestones and given a particular colour on small-scale geological maps ; on larger-scale maps certain hard bands have been used to divide the formation into Lower, Middle and Upper Chalk ; likewise, some argillaceous strata of widespread distribution containing marine fossils are now used to divide the Coal Measures into Lower, Middle and Upper Coal Measures.
