Abbott, Steve; Naish, Tim; Carter, R M; Pillans, Bradley

Description

Late Pliocene to Early Pleistocene (c. 2.08 - 1.63 Ma) strata exposed in coastal cliffs along Nukumaru and Ototoka beaches near Wanganui, between the top of the Nukumaru Limestone and the base of the Butlers Shell Conglomerate, comprise 11 depositional sequences of a total thickness of c. 86 m.
