Group	Stratum	Bedrock Geology


Quaternary Superficial Deposits
	Aeolian (Brickearth) Deposits
	Yellow/brown mainly non-calcareous silt or clayey silt which may locally contain a few flint and chalk fragments

	Alluvium
	Soft organic mottled silty and sandy clay

	Second River Terrace Gravels
	Gravels and sandy gravels (only the higher terraces are described as clayey). In the south of the Portsmouth district, the gravels are predominately flint

Bracklesham
Group	Earnley Sand Formation	Glauconitic silty sands and sandy silts,
with thickness given as 22-25m. The
Earnley Sand rests on the Wittering
Formation, with the base of the
Formation marked by the transgressive
surface (a boundary formed by rapid
sea level rise) overlain by glauconitic
silty sands and pebble bed
The Earnley Sand is overlain by the
Marsh Farm Formation. The boundary
is marked by the upward change from
the Glauconitic Sands of the Earnley
Sand Formation to the thin-bedded
clays and silts with Glauconitic Sand
laminae of the Marsh Farm Formation
	Marsh Farm Formation	Laminated clay; sand interbedded with
clay in equal proportions; and fine- to
medium-grained sparsely Glauconitic
Sand with laminae and intercalations
of clay, with a thickness of 12 – 13.5m.
As noted above, the formation rests on
the Earnley Sand. It is overlain by the
Selsey Sand Formation whose base is
marked by a sharply change to thinly
bedded clays and silts with glauconitic
sand laminae.
	Wittering Formation	Greyish brown laminated clay;
sand interbedded with clay in equal
proportions; and fine- to mediumgrained
sparsely Glauconitic Sand.
It rests on London Clay, a dark grey
bioturbated clay and its thickness is
given as 40-53m.
The Wittering formation is overlain
by Earnley Sand Formation, with the
boundary marked by the transgressive
basal surface of Glauconitic silty sands
with pebbles
Thames
Group	London Clay Formation	Grey, pyritic, bioturbaded silty and
fine-grained sandy clay with seams
of calcareous cementstone and flint
pebble beds. It has a sandy bed at the
base
	Bognor Sand	5-10m thick and comprising Glauconitic
bioturbated or cross-bedded fineand
medium-grained sands, partially
cemented
Chalk Group	Upper Chalk	White chalk with flint seams
