Arkell  (9 June 1904 – 18 April 1958) was a British geologist and paleontologist and regarded as the leading authority in the 20th century on the Jurassic, its fossils and strata.
Arkell was awarded a lectureship in geology at New College, Oxford in 1927, and was made a Senior Research Fellow of that College in 1929. Arkell was able to devote almost all his time to research on the Jurassic and this culminated with the publication in 1933 of "The Jurassic System of Great Britain". The treatise examined and consolidated all previous work on the Jurassic, including the formations described by the pioneer on British geology William Smith in the 19th century. It established Arkell as an authority on the Jurassic.
After WW II, Arkell accepted a Senior Research Fellowship at Trinity College, Cambridge. It was here that Arkell began research on the use of ammonites as fossil zones in Jurassic stratigraphy and became the leading expert on the subject. He travelled widely, especially in the Middle East examining Jurassic exposures and completing detailed studies of Jurassic strata..Arkell then consolidated his knowledge of the Jurassic and published "Jurassic Geology of the World" in 1956. The large, detailed volume to this day remains a classic and influential text.
