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; however, 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 ).

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.

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.

The Wilcox Group (Paleocene to Eocene) of the Sabine uplift, a structural arch in northeastern Texas and northwestern Louisiana (Figure 1), has lignite zones that approach subbituminous rank (see Chapter 4, this publication).These coals are among the highest quality resources known within the Gulf Coastal Plain because of their low ash yield and sulfur content.

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.

Rocks of the Wilcox, Claiborne, and Jackson Groups of Eocene age can be differentiatedCited by: 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.

A series of core-holes over a distance of 19, ft along Bald Head Shoal Channel, just south of Bald Head Island, Long Bay, contain a Danian depositional sequence, a previously unrecognized Ypresian depositional sequence, and two sequences of the Castle Hayne Limestone.

The runoff is through four southeasterly trending tributaries of the "Father of Waters", namely: Cedar river, which parallels the Mississippian belt on the northeast; IOvYa.

The Tallahatta Formation derives its name from the Tallahatta Hills in Choctaw County (Turner and Newton, a,b).The formation comprises part of the Alabama Coastal Plain, which is one of the major physiographic provinces of Alabama.
