Summary: This paper will concentrate on studies that have proved valuable in establishing the Quaternary chronostratigraphy of the Wanganui region of western North Island, and the integration of that stratigraphy with the oceanic record obtained from DSDP sites 284 and 593, about 600 km west of Wanganui and DSDP site 594, about 600 km south of Wanganui.
