Abstract

The Quaternary succession displayed in a nine kilometre stretch of coastal cliff section cut through the Screen Hills kame-moraine between Blackwater Harbour and Tinnaberna, County Wexford is described and four major litho-stratigraphic members are identified. The environments of deposition of each member are discussed and the sequence is considered to represent the advance, retreat and marginal oscillation of a terrestrially based Irish Sea ice-sheet during the late Midlandian glacial stage. Evidence of large scale glacio-tectonic deformation is used to construct a simple model of multiple, but minor readvance of the snout during the building of the kame-moraine.
