This paper outlines the methods which are used to distinguish sediments of marine and alluvial origin in samples collected from boreholes and excavations. Based on these findings and other available information, conclusions are drawn on the Quaternary environmental changes in Hong-Kong. A similar sedimentary sequence is recognized at three separate localities. The type sequence is from top to bottom 1) upper marine deposits of Holocene age post-dating about 8 000 years BP| 2) upper alluvial deposits of last glacial age| 3) lower marine deposits of last interglacial age and 4) lower alluvial deposits of second last glacial age of at least 33 440 years BP.
