Station 9470 (Pliocene of Haiti)

Also known as B 33 F

Where: Haiti (18.4° N, 72.8° W: paleocoordinates 18.4° N, 72.3° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pliocene (5.3 - 2.6 Ma)

• Thick coralliferous limestone overlies the Miocene rocks. Believed to be either Pliocene or Pleistocene, but probably Pliocene because the beds are more greatly deformed.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; poorly lithified, shelly/skeletal limestone

• No precise environmental information reported in text.
• Coralliferous limestone.

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: quarrying,

• Collected by J.S. Brown, March 23, 1920.
