Palaeomagnetic Correlation of the Upper Triassic of Somerset, England, with Continental Europe and Eastern North America
Briden, J. C., Daniels, B. A., Journal of the Geological Society
Abstract: Three Normal and three Reversed palaeomagnetic polarity zones were identified in the exposed 67 m section of Mercia Mudstone at St Audrie's Bay, Somerset, which has been regarded as being of Norian age on limited biostratigraphic evidence. The polarity sequence is correlated with magnetozones E 15 to E 17 in the Newark Basin, New Jersey, further supporting the inferred Norian age and tentatively placing it in the mid-Norian. Correlations with the northern North Sea and the Alps are also suggested. Results from Doniford Bay, where tectonic dips are steeper but which cannot be correlated precisely with the St Audrie's section, are incorporated for the calculation of the mean …
