The lower Cretaceous King Lear Formation (KLF) is a gently east-dipping succession of alluvial conglomerates and sandstones that were deposited in a small intra-arc basin. Supracrustal strata of Cretaceous age from within ...
Late Quaternary marine deposits, offshore central Texas: Processes controlling geometry, distribution, and preservation potential
The interplay of sediment supply, accommodation space, and the rate of sea-level rise and fall, determine the thickness and overall extent of offshore deposits along the central Texas shelf. Analysis of near-shore sediment ...
The Caribbean carbonate crash at the middle to late Miocene transition and the establishment of the modern global thermohaline circulation
The Caribbean carbonate crash was a time of increased regional carbonate dissolution at the middle to late Miocene transition. It is marked by five dissolution episodes, occurring from 12-10 Ma, characterized by significant ...
