Summary

A total of 21 soil samples from a preliminary fault study on the coastline of northern Mozambique, Africa, were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon dating in hopes that the dates will provide some constraint on the overall age of near surface sediments. The project area is predominantly sand with varying degrees of silt and clay. Botanic components, detrital charcoal, and shell were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. A total of 14 radiocarbon dates were obtained from charred material, and two dates were obtained from shell fragments.
