Abstract

An error occurred in the typesetting of this article. On page 85 in the section ‘Superficial geology’, the penultimate sentence reads:

Radio-carbon dating of wood fragments from the base of this formation indicates that the deposits are Holocene in age (Strange & Shaw 1986).

It should have read as three sentences thus:

Radio-carbon dating of wood fragments from the base of this formation gave a date greater than 40 000 years BP (Strange & Shaw 1986) which points to a late Pleistocene age for the formation. The Chek Lap Kok Formation is overlain by a sequence of marine sediments known as the Hang Hau Formation. Radio-carbon dating of shells from near the base of this formation indicates that the deposits are Holocene in age (Strange & Shaw 1986).

We apologise for this error.
