    Abstract In unconfined parts of the Chalk aquifer in southeast England, permeability generally varies laterally with the lowest permeabilities occurring beneath interfluve areas, and the highest beneath river valleys and dry valleys. Furthermore, the Chalk in the river valleys is normally in excellent hydraulic continuity with the overlying highly permeable Quaternary gravels. John Catt was upright, modest and a gentleman, in every sense of the word and he is deeply missed by all his wife Diana, his family, colleagues and friends. John was born in Kent on April 10th, the son of a gardener who worked at the local Church of England vicarage. The Anglican Church was an institution he was soon introduced to and one with which he remained closely associated for the.

In particular Quaternary geology study the process and deposits that developed during the Quaternary, a period characterized by glacial-interglacial cycles. Quaternary geology has developed over time from being originally a branch of historical geology to becoming a science on its own.

    Quaternary - Quaternary - Quaternary life: The length of the Quaternary is short relative to geologic and evolutionary time scales, but the rate of evolutionary change during this period is high. It is a basic tenet of ecology that disturbance increases diversity and ultimately leads to evolutionary pressures. The Quaternary is replete with forces of disturbance and evidence for evolution in. Quaternary Geology is ,scale data that illustrates the geologic features formed in Connecticut during the Quaternary Period, which spans from ± million years ago to the present and includes the Pleistocene (glacial) and Holocene (postglacial) Epochs. The Quaternary Period has been a time of development of many details of.

The Quaternary was, and remains, a period of strong climatic alternations. The recent sea-level rise and anticipated climatic change underline the fact that Quaternary research is of great economic significance. John Catt's "Quaternary Geology for Scientists and Engineers" offers an up-to-date, concise introduction into Quaternary research.

John Catt ( – 7 December ) was a British geologist and soil scientist. Catt spent most of his research career at the Rothamsted Experimental Station, where he made major contributions Quaternary paleopedology and soil retiring from Rothamsted, he was appointed an honorary professor at University College London, and worked on Hertfordshire Geology and Landscape ( Education: University of Hull (BSc, PhD).

This introductory paper describes Quaternary soils according to the climatic conditions under which they were formed (glacial, periglacial, temperate, arid and tropical).

The paper discusses the geological characteristics of the soils and the processes that have acted in forming or altering them, as well as their geotechnical properties. The standard of the paper, printing and presentation is commendably high, and although few individual scientists will find a personal purchase to be financially possible, every library worthy of its name will want to include this book in its current accessions.
