Caption: Green Island, St. Clement, Jersey. Looking S.
Description: Loess capped by blown sand and Neolithic soil. The section shows water-worn diorite covered by 2 m. of loess which fills hollows in the surface of the solid rock. The section is capped by 0.5 m. of grey blown sand discoloured by soil-forming processes. This grey layer contains a horizon of stone blocks from a Neolithic cemetery cairn. The stone level is covered by a further soil of post-Neolithic date. The loess is probably of Devensian age.
