Bibliography of Ray Bourque Authentic Jersey Geology of the Barton and Hordle Cliffs
Apart from a bibliographic listing, this is also for references used in the Highcliffe, and Hordle Cliffs webpages. Thus some papers listed here do not refer directly to the area, but may be used for comparison or other purposes. There are a few papers on the adjacent coast of Mudeford and Hengistbury Head, but this area is not covered thoroughly in the present bibliography. 1994. Changes in the composition of gastropds in West Eurasian seas at the Eocene Oligocene boundary. Paleontologicheskii Zhurnal, 1, 16 26. Jan March, 1994. Language Russian. Abstract: Analysis of ian, Priabonian and Rupelian marine gastropod assemblages of Europe and Western Asia confirms the fact that the Eocene Oligocene boundary was a moment of quick cooling. But it was only an episode in the process of cooling which
had begun earlier. In northern seas faunal changes were much more essential than in the Tethys. [Russian publication relevant to ian faunas]. Undated (probably 1970s or 80s).

Warning notices have been put up because of cliff falls and danger of further slips. Footpaths have collapsed and at on Sea Golf Club, where the clifftop second green has had to be abandonned, the fourth green is now threatened. [end of short article].1981. Cliff work delayed by cash snag. Southern Evening Echo, Newspaper 27 Feb. 1981. "Further work to stabilise the eroded cliffs at on sea has been hit by the lack of a Government grant. A scheme costing ?4,000 at today's prices is now to be put back a year, when it is hoped Environment Department cash will be available. In the meantime, New Forest Council's Environmental Services Committee has approved stengthening work to a groyne at an estimated expense of ?,500, which will have to be met from revenue expenses".1982a. History buried in clay. Southern Evening Echo. [probably Friday, December 10, 1982]. What is so special about 's fossils? Forty million years ago the cliffs formed the floor of a predecessor of the Channel, explains Dr West of Southampton University's Geology Department. The clay has beautifully preserved more than 500 species of shell. Remains of corals, ray fish, crocodiles, whales, giant fan shells, turtles, crabs and sea urchins are to be found specimens typical of a warmer climate similar to Japan or Australia. The specimens are of such quality Dr West sees the cliffs as a kind of reference book for the period 40 million years ago. Where other scientists turn to books for help, geologists use formations like the Cliffs as their reference. "The sequence of fossils is the most diverse and abundant assemblage of fossils of this age anywhere in Europe" says NCC geologist, Dr Keith Duff. Some geologists claim Darwin might never have developed his theory of evolution if it had not been for 's fossils. His teacher was Charles from Cadnam who studied the fossils intensively.

Extracts: 's district councillor, Mr. Eddie Nabney, has expressed concern that there might have to be a major cliff fall before work can go ahead on sea defences along his local coastline. Officers at a meeting of the Environmental Services Committee told Mr. Nabney that it was likely to be 1984 or 1985 before work began on three new strongpoints and cliff stabilisation of land west of Chewton Bunny. But Mr Nabney had sharp words for geologists too. They should realise that people's properties had to be protected. They themselves could causing damage and erosion. Hammering away at the foot of cliffs could not be doing any good, he said.2004. Paths closed after
cliff moves. Lymington Times, no. 3747, Saturday, January 24th, 2004. p.1.
Nearly a quarter of a mile of the coastal path at on Sea has been closed by the council to protect the public. Exceptionally heavy rainfall in the last few months had created further cliff movement in an area which was already notorious for the speed with which it was eroding, said New Forest District Council. The closures affect the upper and lower tracks between the Sea Road access and Hoskins Gap to the east, a distance of approximately 400m.
The rain gauge at Naish Holiday Village recorded 84mm Terry O'Reilly Womens Jersey of rain in October, 147mm in November and
118mm in December. Evidence of further cliff movement I at had been detected last week and existing tension cracks had widened at the bottom of the Sea Road access. Mudslides had also covered the lower access tracks with soft clay and mud. Signs have been placed at various locations to advise members of the: public not to use the closed sections of the footpath or walk over cliff slopes because of the current levels of instability.
"It is vital that people obey the notices and do not take any unnecessary risks," said Coun. Michael I Thierry, New Forest District Council's portfolio holder for environment. : "We have put up the fences for the time being in order to protect mem I bers of the public from a very real threat to their Terry O'Reilly Youth Jersey safety. There are many people who visit cliffs who are not familiar with the territory and do not have local knowledge. We hope
that everyone will understand the reasons for those closures and that they will act responsibly to protect themselves and other users. "The council's coastal protection team will continue to monitor the situation and revise the access track closures when it is considered appropriate."1984. Clifftop land purchase order to be enforced. Christchurch Advertiser, 2 February, 1984. Christchurch Council has voted to go ahead with a compulsory purchase order on clifftop land at Highcliffe so urgent coast protection work can be undertaken. The order was urged on the council's works committee following the breakdown of talks with landowners to buy some 650 yards of the clifftop from Highcliffe Castle to Culmore Steps. In November the committee reluctantly shelved its plans for the half million pound cliff protection scheme, insisting that the project was not viable if the council did not own all the land. But a petition from the anxious residents of flats in Arundel Way nearest to the crumbling cliff edge prompted the committee to think again and press for compulsory purchase. Main feature of the stabilisation work is to sink a diaphragm wall into the clifftop to prevent water running down the cliff face causing erosion.2007False earthquake alert sparked by cliff crack. Lymington Times (Newspaper), No. 3919, Saturday, May 5th, 2007, page 1 and continued on page 3. The alarm was raised on Saturday morning by a member of the public, evidently not familiar with area's crumbling cliffs, who saw the crack after hearing about the tremor in Dover.
The police soon arrived in four marked cars accompanied by an ambulance and paramedics. They cordoned off part of the road and access to beach huts until it was found that there was nothing amiss. Later in the morning they removed road restrictions and allowed access to the huts.
Inspections later carried out on the site by several groups of experts confirmed that the cliff crack had not suddenly emerged at the weekend and also quashed rumours of any possible link to the Kent earthquake. There was no crack in the road as had also been reported.
The Maritime and Ray Bourque Kids Jersey Coastguard Agency had originally said it was "too coincidental" to ignore links between the Kent quake and the crack, but (BGS) experts who investigated the area on Tuesday said a "mountain had been made out of a molehill".
