      The dune-field, shown here, is fronted on the right side by a long sinuous slip-face down which sand avalanches. It is advancing landward into the forest (to the right) at approximately 1 m (3 ft) per year. Episodes of dune activity similar to this were occurring on Bermuda during the Pleistocene epoch.

        The book by Multer () compiles much of the literature of the s and s and is designed for students and visitors. The field guide to the reefs by Shinn et al. () incorporates work done from the U.S. Geological Survey Fisher Island Station over the 15 years of its existence. Using the depositional nature of the Holocene sediments as a guide for the Pliocene – Pleistocene carbonate rocks, the islands were determined to have formed on the windward or ocean facing margins of the carbonate banks. Along the Pleistocene sea-facing bank margins, there is limestone evidence of coral reefs that defended the islands.

      This field guide provides an up-to-date and integrated approach to the geology and geomorphology of Almería Province, compiled by active scientific researchers in the region. The guide assumes a basic knowledge of geology and geomorphology and will be of interest to earth scientists at all levels from the keen amateur through to undergraduate. H. Allen Curran's 92 research works with 1, citations reads, including: BURIED BY WIND: GEORADAR SHEDS LIGHT ON ANCIENT FORESTS AND SETTLEMENTS ENTOMBED BY RAPIDLY MIGRAING DUNES.

For a geologist, it is critical to. Pleistocene fluctuations of sea level have left marine and aeolian limestones intercalated with glacial red soils on the Bermuda Carbonate Platform (Atlantic, 64°50′W, 32°20′N).

An extensive complex of Pleistocene and Holocene carbonate eolian sandstone units and unconsolidated sand dunes along the southeast coast of Kaua'i is described, informally named, and interpreted.

These well-exposed deposits, which have received little previous geologic study, include Recent beach and unconsolidated eolian sand bodies.

Carbonate eolianites are wind-deposited, terrestrial sedimentary rocks composed of sand-size grains and cement of calcium carbonate. Rocks of this origin make up the greater part of the Quaternary sequences that cap the islands of the Bahama Archipelago.
