Abstract

In tropical regions beach-rock in the best tool for the study of the variations of sandy beach outlines during the last 6 000 years. In Madagascar, it is very frequent, especially in the coral reef areas. It provides possibilities to obtain data concerning the evolution, often very complicated, of littoral spits, sand cays, and motu. Arrecifes, on the SE, S and SW coasts of Madagascar, are not Flandrian beach rocks, but probably contemporaneous with the post Eemian regression.
