Abstract:

Studies on marine Quarternary shorelines in different parts of the world have been carried on, largely in cooperation with the Lamont Geological Observatory. Cores obtained from the Continental Shelf off Argentina and Chile have yielded fossils indicating a lower sea level. Field work has been done along the Pacific Coast of the United States, as well as near Punta Penasco, Sonora, Mexico, along the Gulf of California. Numerous new localities have been discovered along the Atlantic Coast of the United State and fossile mollusks have been studied. Numerous dates obtained by radiocarbon or ionium are recorded. Limited field work was done in the West Indies, but these studies are not yet complete. Author
