Title: New Pleistocene Marine Fossil Locality in Chambers County, Texas: ABSTRACT

Author(s): William R. Pampe

Article Type: Meeting abstract


A well-preserved marine invertebrate fauna of late Pleistocene age represented by 48 species has been found in Ingleside barrier island, southeastern Texas.

The fauna is similar to the Holocene fauna of the Texas Gulf Coast. Most of the species suggest deposition in a rather low salinity bay or inlet environment, but the entire fauna indicates changing environmental conditions.
