Abstract

This paper presents a detailed description of the boulders of north Eleuthera and demonstrates that they were deposited by waves during the Pleistocene. It describes the time and stratigraphy related to boulder emplacement, and evaluates tsunamis, slumpling of the bank margin, and storms as potential wave-generating mechanisms
