We review the Quaternary geology of the North Sea area, summarising evidence for extents, configurations and timing of former glacial activity, focusing attention on key sites across the basin, and for the first time, integrating the stratigraphy with up-to-date information on the geomorphic (morphological) framework of the Pleistocene glacial sequence.
