    Battersea is a part of London on the south bank of the River Thames. Its northern boundary is the Thames, which runs first northeast, and then east, before turning north again to pass Westminster. The northwestern corner is demarcated by Wandsworth Bridge, and Battersea tapers south to a point roughly three miles (5 km) from the northeastern. Many geological survey organisations have started delivering digital geological models as part of their role. This article describes the British Geological Survey (BGS) model for London and the Thames Valley in southeast England. The model covers km 2 and extends to several hundred metres depth. It includes extensive spreads of Quaternary.

    Some of the most remarkable sites are found in central London itself, including Trafalgar Square, where hippos, rhinos and elephants roamed the banks of the Thames years ago. In addition, the Thames valley has acted as a conduit for early human movements, providing raw materials for stone tool manufacture and lush environments for.   The Thames displays the same qualities as London: The Biography: scholarship, wit, discursiveness, lovely descriptive writing, anecdotes, spirit of place and is hugely enjoyable and sure to be another mammoth bestseller. The Thames is about the river from source to sea, from prehistoric times to the present, its flora and fauna, the paintings and photographs inspired by the Thames Reviews:

G.: : Books.   The first chapter, The Foundations of Metroburbia, explains the foundation and development of Metroburbia and looks at how topography and geology influenced the siting of the villages that would become part of Greater London. The River Thames, of course, is one of London’s most important and well-known structural elements, and in this chapter Reviews: 3.

The oldest rocks proved through boreholes to exist below London are the old, hard rocks of the consist of Silurian mudstones and sandstones, generally overlain by Devonian strata which are largely of Old Red Devonian rocks are absent in parts of South London. The Palaeozoic rocks dip southwards and are more than 1, metres below the English Channel.

An overview of the regional geology is provided by Sumbler (), whilst the ‘London Memoir’ (Ellison et al., ) describes the four scale mapsheets covering London and environs that form the eastern half of the model recently, Royse et al.

This deposit can be up to metres thick below the city. This London Clay was formed during the million years ago during a time when Britain was under warm tropical seas. This account provides a broad perspective of the geology of the London and Thames Valley region of southern England, which extends from Essex westwards through Greater London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire and into Oxfordshire and northern Wiltshire.

The northeastern part of the historic county now lies within Greater London, forming all or most of the boroughs of Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Merton, Richmond upon Thames, Southwark, Sutton, and Wandsworth.

That history accounts for the location of the county’s administrative centre in the London borough of Kingston upon Thames. The Thames system is the largest drainage basin in Britain: the Middle and Lower Thames occupying the London Basin, a syncline of Mesozoic and overlying Tertiary rocks.

The Thames is a broadly W–E aligned stream axial to the basin, with tributaries entering from both the northern and southern margins.

The River Thames (/ ˈ t ɛ m z / TEMZ), known alternatively in parts as the Isis, is a river that flows through southern England including miles ( km), it is the longest river entirely in England and the second-longest in the United Kingdom, after the River Severn.
