Summary

Two cores were collected using a split spoon sampler on a drill rig from

Fort Shafter Flats. Individual pollen samples were examined approximately every

half foot between a depth of 8 and 11 feet in Core D. A single sample between

13 and 13 1/2 feet was also examined. Core E represents a continuation in depth

and sampling from 14 1/2 to 22 1/2 feet. Since the project area was located in

a marine environment, pollen preservation was expected to be poor and pollen

recovery was doubtful, at least for the lower sediments. Pollen analysis was

undertaken to examine these sediments, particularly the upper sediments, for

evidence of utilization either as fishponds or for wetland agriculture.
