Abstract

Chaya Formation (Late Pleistocene - Holocene) of Dwarka-Okha area in Saurashtra peninsula, Gujarat, is subdivided into the lower Okha Shell Limestone Member and the upper Aramda Reef Member. A ca 1.5m thick succession of coral-algal lithofacies of Aramda Reef Member that has been radiometrically dated at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, U.S.A. to 41.2-18.3 ka, is exposed in a well section near Mithapur (district Jamnagar), and is described here. The environmental conditions during Late Pleistocene are also discussed.
