SW of San José, La Guajira - 2 m terrace (pg. 159) (Holocene of Colombia)

Where: Colombia (12.3° N, 71.8° W: paleocoordinates 12.3° N, 71.6° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Holocene (0.0 - 0.0 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From an unknown lithostratigraphic unit, but unlikely to belong to the Castilletes Fm; lithostratigraphic relationships are not reported.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; unlithified sandstone and unlithified claystone

• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Sands and clays. LITHIFICATION: Unlithified, on the basis of facies description.

Size class: macrofossils
