Abstract
In certain Pacific island chains, characterized by feldspathoids in their volcanic rocks, the arrangement of the different types of islands conforms to a pattern which suggests that yulcanicity began at one end and moved progressively along the chain, erecting a series of volcanoes, each of which passed through a succession of stages, ending as an atoll. The origin of coral reefs is discussed in the light of these observations.
