Abstract

In Section 1, six papers review and synthesize knowledge of sea-level chronology, coastal forms, and dynamics of nearshore waves, currents and sediments. In section 2, nine papers deal with unpublished or little known field studies of prehistoric sites now submerged on nearshore shelves. The land bridges as migration corridors of the late Quaternary are discussed in Sections 3 (the passage from Siberia to North America: 8 papers) and 4 (Australia and the Old World: 3 papers). Each paper has been analysed separately. (P. A. Pirazzoli).
