Abstract

This paper follows my attempted correlation of the Pleistocene
glacial epochs (Lewis, 1934).
Further study of the raised beaches and river terraces in the
Derwent, Coal, and Huon River valleys has made possible a tentative
statement of the late Tertiary and Pleistocene succession in Southern
Tasmania. The whole problem has by no means been solved, but
sufficient data are forthcoming to warrant recording as a basis for
future work. This is the phase of Tasmanian geology which has
received the least attention in the past, and it was not until the
effect of the waxing and waning of the four Pleistocene Ice Sheets
on the level of the ocean was fully understood that the various
apparently contradictory features of our coastal plains was decipherable.
