Abstract

DURING an expedition to explore the geology of British Somaliland, extending to 19 months spent there in 1928–30, much of the country was seen, with the possibly important exception of the coastal strip east of Berbera. It is hoped to publish the geological and palæontological results in due course, and specialists are now working out the fossil collections. The following details noted incidentally may help to supplement Dr. Parkinson's account of the late climatic changes.1
