Station 9674 (Pleistocene of Haiti)

Also known as W 301a F

Where: Haiti (19.8° N, 72.9° W: paleocoordinates 19.8° N, 72.8° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pleistocene (2.6 - 0.0 Ma)

• Marine deposits are common along the coast where they form narrow fringes, a few places 1 or 2 km wide. The Quaternary deposits everywhere rest on the underlying formations unconformably. The unconformity is angular as well as erosional, even with the Pliocene and Miocene, but at some places where there are no Pliocene deposits the discordance with the Miocene deposits may be slight. At Port de Paix, the bed (station 9764) is 1.5 m thick, comprised of shelly sand and overlies unconslidated sands and is overlain by reef rock (station 9765). The entire section is just 7. 1 m thick.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; unlithified, pebbly, shelly/skeletal mixed carbonate-siliciclastic sediments

• No precise environmental information reported in text.
• Waterworn pebbles, poorly consolidated, in matrix of sand; lenses of sand containing worn shells and small pieces of corals.

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: quarrying,

• Collected by W.P. Woodring, February 21, 1921

Stanton). Identifications of corals by T.W. Vaughan, Echinoderms by R.T. Jackson, and forams by W.P. Woodring.
