DETAILED TEXTURE AND HEAVY MINERALOGY OF RECENT SANDS ALONG THE NORTHEASTERN TEXAS GULF COAST AND A RESULTING MODEL FOR BARRIER FORMATION
Numerous textural and heavy mineralogical analyses have been performed on sand samples from the northeastern Texas Gulf coastal region. Analyses of local point-bar samples result in the delineation of major river and ...
BASIN-MARGIN SEDIMENTATION: EOCENE LA JOLLA GROUP, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
Continental to deep-marine facies transitions, eustatic versus tectonic controls on basin-margin stratigraphy, shelf-edge unconformities, and depositional mechanisms along basin margins were investigated for Middle Eocene ...
THE STRATIGRAPHY AND SEDIMENTOLOGY OF UPPER CRETACEOUS SEDIMENTS OF SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA AND BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO
The Late Cretaceous sedimentary record is preserved in a series of scattered outcrops along the coast of southwestern California to central Baja, Mexico. Virtually identical stratigraphic sequences and interpreted depositional ...
FACIES OF LATE PLEISTOCENE GLACIAL MARINE SEDIMENTS ON WHIDBEY ISLAND, WASHINGTON
Detailed mapping of over 10 kms of cliff exposure on Whidbey Island, Washington has resulted in the recognition of six major lithofacies within "Everson" age glacial-marine deposits (late-Pleistocene). These lithofacies ...
SEDIMENTARY ENVIRONMENT AND PETROLOGY OF THE AIN TOBI FORMATION, TRIPOLITANIA, LIBYA
The Aptian to Cenomanian aged Ain Tobi Formation of northwest Libya and adjacent Tunisia is a shallowing upward platform deposit. It has been studied in detail long its outcrop in the Jebel Nefusa of Tripolitania and with ...
