Abstract

INTRODUCTION

This is Number 3 of a series of correlation charts prepared under the auspices of the Committee of Stratigraphy of the National Research Council (Dunbar, 1942, p. 429–434). It was compiled by a subcommittee on the Silurian system.

Each member of the subcommittee has furnished, and is responsible for, the correlations suggested in the columns bearing his name and has provided or approved the annotations cited in his columns.1
