Summary

Two sediment samples from the Chalan Monsignor Guerrero Phase III Roadway Expansion

and Improvements Project (CMG) in Saipan were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains.

These samples represent buried, lower stratigraphic sequences in the eastern end of the project

area. Pollen and macrofloral analyses will be used to provide information concerning landscape

formation and paleoenvironment, especially the vegetation regime of the former marshes or

estuaries in this area. Five charcoal samples also were submitted for identification prior to

radiocarbon analysis. These charcoal samples represent a range of temporal associations from

later habitations on the western, shoreward area of the project.
