Flandrian stratigraphy and sedimentation in the Bothkennar- Grangemouth area, Scotland

    Abstract

    Flandrian carse clays underlie this area and, with the establishment of a soft clay research site at Bothkennar, boreholes have allowed establishment of the local stratigraphy. Most of the sediment was deposited during the post 6500 BP regression. Radiocarbon ages are reported, and an approximate sea-level curve established. Overall, the sediments are a mixed suite of bedded, bioturbated and laminated silty clays of nearshore and tidal flat origin, with the locus of sedimentation migrating seawards between 5000 and 3000 yr BP. -K.Clayton
