Abstract

Driftwood as a rafting agent for rocks is compared to other marine agents in terms of size and abundance of rocks and effective geographical range. It is concluded that driftwood is the chief rafting agent for large erratic rocks in far offshore regions of the tropics. In areas nearer shore and at high latitudes driftwood rafting is probably secondary to other forms of transportation of rocks.
