The Jersey Geology Trail, around Jersey in the Channel Islands, GB, reveals a remarkable variety of rock types and structures exposed in a small island, 9 x 5 miles (cx10km), situated in the Bay of St.

Malo between Normandy and Brittany. The beauty of Jersey lies in its cliffs, bays and inland valleys. This beauty is the result of the island.

The geology of Jersey is characterised by the Late Proterozoic Brioverian volcanics, the Cadomian Orogeny, and only small signs of later deposits from the Cambrian and Quaternary periods.

The kind of rocks go from conglomerate to shale, volcanic, intrusive and plutonic igneous rocks of many compositions, and metamorphic rocks as well, thus including most major types. Jersey Geology Trail: Conglomerates. conglomerare = to roll together).

Conglomerates are coarse clastic sedimentary rocks consisting of rounded to sub-rounded clasts larger than 2mm in size which gives the rock the appearance of pebbles cemented together. The pebbles may be of a single rock type (oligomict) or of several different types.

The old geologic map of New Jersey (Lewis and K mmel,revised ) showed the Magothy to consist of only one lithology (Cliffwood beds at Cliffwood Beach, Monmouth County).

The geology of northern New Jersey was heavily influenced by three separate cyclical periods of glacier flows during the Ice Ages, with the last intrusion occurring s years ago when glaciers expanded from the north and then retreated as the climate warmed.

The glacial flows pushed boulders, rock and soil in their path, carved valleys.
