A method is described for processing of large amounts of palynological basic data by using the IBM 1401 computer. The palynologist enters observations on a counting sheet and the computer calculates percentages and relative abundance indices, and prints bar histograms in groups of five. The interpretation on of massive quantities of data in fractions of a minute make this method valuable in ecological studies of large areas, and especially in establishment of type sections and biostratigraphic units in regions where large amounts of information are obtained from well samples.--B.S.H
