A succession based principally on planktonic foraminifera has been established for the Solomon islands. It contains ten units ranging in age from upper Eocene to upper Miocene-Pliocene. The Malaita group, exposed on Malaita, Maramasike and Ulawa, contains the entire succession. Correlation of its faunas with others from the Indo-Pacific region has confirmed the time-stratigraphic succession of the Solomons.
