POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS FOR THE CHALAN MONSIGNOR GUERRERO PHASE III ROADWAY EXPANSION AND IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT, SAIPAN
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.
