Abstract

The Youngest Toba Ash (Ca. 74,000 yr B.P.) occurs extensively in the Indian subcontinent. The reworked ash samples are closely similar in their bulk chemical composition, REE signature, and bubble-wall shard morphology to those from the Toba caldera and deep-sea cores from the Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean. The Toba ash thus can be used as an event marker for regional and global Quaternary correlation
