Description :
Nine samples of corals collected from seven locations in the Saurashtra Coastal region of India were dated by U series disequilibrium methods. Of the three age groups reported for this region by the earlier studies of S. K. Gupta and B. S. Amin, the AA could confirm only the 6000 yr group. Instead of a 120,000 yr group, they found a scatter of ages between 118,000 and 176,000 yr. There appears to be no evidence for 30,000 yr-old corals from this region.
