    REGIONAL STRATIGRAPHY AND SUBSURFACE GEOLOGY OF CENOZOIC DEPOSITS, GULF COASTAL PLAIN, SOUTH-CENTRAL UNITED STATES By R.L. HOSMAN ABSTRACT The Gulf Coast Regional Aquifer-System Analysis includes all major aquifer systems in Cenozoic deposits in the Gulf Coastal Plain in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mis­Cited by: The stratigraphic occurrences are given for about 45 of the more significant plant microfossil types from some well-documented reference localities in the Mississippi embayment area of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas.

    Sequence Stratigraphy of the Mississippi Delta. Ron Boyd (1), John Suter (2,3), Shea Penland (3) ABSTRACT. One method of testing the concept of sequence stratigraphy is to compare it to Quaternary sediments in which chronology, stratigraphic relations and facies geometry are more clearly understood than in older rocks. The sequence in Mississippi is predominantly fluvial and deltaic, while the equivalent units in Alabama accumulated in deltaic and shallow marine environments. The regressive nonmarine intervals are characterized by thick sequences of relatively nonfossiliferous cross-bedded sands; laminated to thin-bedded sands, silts and clays, and by: 1.

    include the Midway, Wilcox, Claiborne and jackson Groups. The New Madrid test well is correlated to the Fort Pillow test well in west Tennessee. This correlation clearly demonstrates the similarity of the formations in the two States and allows for the continuity of stratigraphic nomenclature in the northern part of the Mississippi by: 2. DEPOSITIONAL MODEL FOR LIGNITE OCCURRENCE IN THE WILCOX GROUP OF SOUTH-CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI Walter L. O'NielP ABSTRACT The Wilcox Group has been mapped within an county area of south-central Mississippi. Eleven lignite isopleth and sand fades maps have been prepared using data gathered from oil well logs.

Across the border in Mississippi (Foster, ). If the lignite bed actually is continuous from Alabama into Mississippi, then it is Impossible for it to cross a major stratigraphic boundary such as that between the Midway and Wilcox Groups, especially since this boundary has been described as a major unconformity (Hughes, ).Author: C.R.

The Gulf Coast Paleogene section represents one of the world's most continuous records of cyclic nonmarine through marine sedimentation. Microfossil research has demonstrated the completeness of downdip marine sections; Lignite and the Midway-Wilcox stratigraphic boundary, the continuity of updip, nonmarine, and marginal marine sections.

In Mississippi and Alabama, the Paleocene–Eocene boundary is within the upper Tuscaloosa Formation (Harrington and KempHarrington ). In eastern Mississippi, the upper Tuscaloosa succession in the Harrell core includes a negative shift in stable isotope values that indicates the CIE at the PETM (Van Roij ).

Thompson Mississippi Office of Geology INTRODUCTION The stratigraphy of the Paleocene section of Mississippi bas been the subject of controversy for many years.

Coastal Plain of Alabama consist of clastic deposits of Early Cretaceous age; the Coker and Gordo Formations of the Tuscaloosa Group, Eutaw Formation, and Selma Group of Late Cretaceous age; and the Midway, Wilcox, and Claiborne Groups of Tertiary age.

Paleocene - Eocene Stratigraphy and Paleontology of East-Central Texas: Wilcox Group - Claiborne Group - Jackson Group Strata SUMMARY The 4 locations we will visit today provide an opportunity to examine and discuss depositional environments and stratigraphic relationships in parts of the Wilcox Group, Claiborne and Jackson groups as developed.

Paleoenvironments favorable for lignite deposition existed in sedimentary regimes of the Naheola Formation (upper Midway Group) and in Midway-Wilcox transition sediments apparently assignable to the Nanafalia Formation (Wilcox Group).

In addition, lignite horizons are recognized in the Tuscahoma. MacNeil, F.S.,The Midway and Wilcox stratigraphy of Alabama and Mississippi: U.S. Geological Survey Mineral Investigations Strategic Map, MS, scaleSummary: Unit is redefined as member of Wilcox formation in MS and as.

Lignite prospecting in the Wilcox-Meridian section of North Mississippi can be greatly aided through an understanding of the geographic and stratigraphic distribution of the major depositional systems. Regarding fluvial systems, organic debris preferentially accumulates with fine-grained sediment.
