Figure F21. Schematic of possible correlation of the uppermost part of the Holocene–Pleistocene succession between Holes U1351B, U1353B, and U1354B. Columns are aligned relative to top depth and distance (not to scale). Distinct lithologic boundaries and two predominant sand beds can be correlated among the columns. Four depositional units are well defined: an uppermost unit of possible Holocene age and three units of possible upper Pleistocene age. The two thick, well-sorted, very fine–fine sand beds at the most landward site (Hole U1353B) thin offshore. The upper sand bed disappears into a sandy interval in Holes U1354B and U1351B.
