Percival Allen

Percival Allen FRS (15 March 1917 – 3 April 2008) was a British geologist.

In March 1973, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. His application citation read: "Distinguished for his investigations of Lower Cretaceous sedimentation in north-western Europe. His reconstructions of Wealden palaeography and depositional environments have been based on meticulous examination and analysis of faecies changes, sedimentary structures and petrology combined with a study of modern deltaic and littoral sedimentation. He has stimulated much research along similar lines in other formations, notably the Torridonian. He was a pioneer in the application of statistical methods to sedimentary models. At Reading he has built up an outstanding school of sedimentology." [1]
