Useful WebsitesThe QRA provides information and resources useful for secondary and tertiary education as well as containing material and links of more general interest. Many of the weblinks have been chosen to be useful for A-level teaching in the subjects of geography and geology. Information and links are listed under the following categories:
English Landscape and Geology
This site developed by Natural England contains various maps of England on which are referenced all NNRs, SSSIs and other designated areas of geological or ecological importance. In addition to showing the location of such areas, the site also contains linked descriptions and photos. Many of the designated areas on the map have Quaternary significance.
Revision of the base of the Quaternary
This link is for the Subcommission on Quaternary Stratigraphy. It contains links to the recent documentation associated with the 2009 revision to the geological timescale in which the base of the Quaternary Period and the Pleistocene Epoch are now officially recognised at 2.6 million years ago.
