Summary:Radiometric and paleontologic ages of samples from Guam, Saipan, and the Palau Islands. The oldest arc-related volcanic rocks are from Guam, dated at 43.8 ± 1.6 m.y. B.P. (late middle Eocene). Marianas and Palau Islands contain volcanic units of late Eocene, early Oligocene and Miocene.—Modified journal abstract. [C.N.]
