Abstract

In the course of geologic and physiographic work in eastern Pennsylvania, it has seemed to the writer that the time was ripe for the restriction of the term Brandywine formation, now including presumably both Pliocene and Pleistocene gravels, and the reinstatement of the old term Bryn Mawr gravel for a portion of the divided Brandywine. A brief history of the nomenclature and usage involved will show the grounds for the choice of terms.
