See: Institute of British Geographers, 1965, “Raised reefs of Ramanathapuram,” Transactions. “Indian Ocean elevated reefs, in Ramanathapuram District, Tamilnadu, South India, at the western end of Adam’s Bridge, between India and Ceylon. The morphology and fauna of the raised reefs are described, evidence for dating is assembled, and the implications for Gardiner’s and Sewell’s correlation of these deposits with other western Indian Ocean reef features are discussed.”
