Abstract

We comment on interpretations of the evolution of late Pleistocene geology on West Caicos Island, Caicos Platform, B.W.I. by Kerans et al. (2019), which omits our documentation of the interrelationship of carbonate facies in outcrop and in boreholes (Dravis and Wanless, 2017). We further disagree with their geochronological dating assumptions/results that are the basis for interpreting late Quaternary sea-level fluctuations.
