Formatted Abstract/Summary

The record of Quaternary events in Moreton Bay has been investigated through studies of both submarine and onshore sediments. Samples of the sea floor sediments have been collected and further information has been provided by geophysical and coring programmes. Three submarine sedimentary zones are recognised and five principal lithofacies types have been related to these zones. Holocene and Pleistocene sediments have been distinguished in submarine cores and criteria for their recognition are listed. The onshore Quaternary record on Mud and St Helena Islands consists of beach ridges and platforms, beachrock deposits and a relict coral reef. Evidence for a sea level slightly higher than that of the present is provided by an exposed fossil coral facies on Mud Island.
