Abstract

The widespread range of Pleistocene glacial drifts in Tasmania was recognised by Charles Gould as early as 1860, and by 1885 R. M. Johnston had recorded their existence over the whole of the western highlands (Johnston, 1893). Until l893 no suggestion had been made that there had been more than one glacial phase in Tasmania, but in the paper last referred to R. M. Johnston recorded difficulties in the interpretation of the field evidence, which have since been used to prove the existence of such separate phases.
