This report describes the late Cenozoic development of the United Kingdom (UK) continental margin, and attempts to do so in a manner that is useful to geologists and non-geologists. This is done by means of presenting and describing systems-tract models that depict a variety of environments for significant time-slices in the margin's history. The models are primarily based on existing geological interpretations and publications, which are in large part the result of the British Geological Survey (BGS) offshore regional mapping programme.
