The Cretaceous System in the Mississippi Gulf Subsurface sections of central Mississippi can be divided into the Upper and Lower Cretaceous Series. The Lower Cretaceous can be divided into the Hosston, Sligo, Pine Island, James, Rodessa, Ferry Lake, Mooringsport, Paluxy, Washita-Fredericksburg, and Dantzler formations.

The Upper Cretaceous includes the Lower, Middle, and. Age: Late Cretaceous Period, Gulfian Series Distribution: Gulf Coastal Plain in southwest Arkansas, parts of Pike, Howard, and Sevier Counties; Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana Geology: The Woodbine Formation is composed of bedded gravel, sand, bedded clay, and water-laid volcanic tuff and basal part of this unit is composed of gravel-bearing beds of variable thickness, which may be.

The specimen is from the Late Cretaceous Ripley Formation of north-central Mississippi. It is the most complete specimen of Thoracosaurus known from North America and shows that Holopsisuchus.

Cretaceous rocks are exposed in large areas of central Kansas and eastern Nebraska and smaller areas in southeastern Missouri and western Kansas and Nebraska. Cretaceous strata in Nebraska and Kansas consist largely of shale, but prominent, widespread sandstones are in the lower part of the Cretaceous section, and equally widespread limestone.

It is the third and final period of the Mesozoic Era, as well as the name is derived from the Latin creta, "chalk".It is usually abbreviated K, for its German translation Kreide.

The Cretaceous was a period with a relatively warm climate. The Triassic succession in Oman is part of Sharland et al.’s () AP6 TMS which began in the Mid-Permian and lasted until the Lower Jurassic. The Triassic part of the AP6 TMS in outcrops of the Oman Mountains is called Mahil Formation which involves the Lower Mahil (Upper Khuff in the subsurface), Middle Mahil (Sudair in the subsurface), and Upper Mahil (Jilh in the subsurface) members.

The Cretaceous was named for the extensive chalk deposits of this age in Europe, but in many parts of the world, the Cretaceous system consists for a major part of marine limestone, a rock type that is formed under warm, shallow marine circumstances.

The Mississippi River alluvial valley is from 40 to km wide, and sections of the valley are bounded by loess bluffs up to 70 m high. Uplands east of the valley are capped by thick loess deposits that thin as distance from the Mississippi River increases.

Late Cretaceous sediments, the Dakota Sandstone, Mancos Shale, and Mesaverde Formation, are about 2, ft thick and rest on middle Permian beds or on a northward-tapering edge of Early Cretaceous strata.

Adkins' work on the distribution of shoestring and barrier sands in the subsurface of the Miocene and the origin and migration of oil were also particularly important. Adkins was married twice, and died on Septem deposits chiefly reflect the interplay of a generally ris­ ing sea level and the proximity of sources of terrige­ nous detritus, especially detrital quartz.

For example, seaward of west-central Florida the outer shelf is es­ sentially a bedrock surface overlain by a thin veneer.

From subsurface control, this salt appears laterally continuous and underlies parts of Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, and probably all of Louisiana.

A maximum stratigraphic thickness of 1, feet was recorded in the Placid No. 3 Freeman-Smith (Sec. 14, T. A majority of the papers cover Cretaceous carbonates of South and Central Texas, while a few deal with the extensive but less well known Cretaceous carbonates of West Texas.

Studies of the Mexican Cretaceous are also included, with much attention given to outcropping facies that are similar to subsurface facies in Texas. The eastern margin of Cretaceous deposits in Kansas has retreated farther west in southern Kansas than in the central and northern parts.

Hence, along or near the southern boundary of Kansas, Permian rocks outcrop within miles of the Colorado line (Fig. 90). These Permian beds are younger than those exposed farther east.

Cretaceous sediments are thin or missing from topographically higher parts of the buried pre-Cretaceous surface, but are as much as feet thick in valleys and depressions.

Available data suggest that the topography of the pre-Cretaceous surface was related primarily to differences in resistance of the older rocks to weathering and erosion. COAL (see also LIGNITE) — Bituminous coal, which occurs in North Central, South, and West Texas, was a significant energy source in Texas prior to the large-scale development of oil and gas.

During the period from –, Texas mines produced more than 25 million tons of coal. The mines were inactive for many years, but the renewed interest in coal as a major energy source prompted a.

Of Mississippi's 82 counties, 45 currently have or have had oil and gas production from approximately fields with an estimated pools. The Energy Section of the Mississippi Office of Geology is currently working on a project to construct, on a county by county level, digital oil and gas production index maps.

The book contains many of the classic line-drawing illustrations and photomicrographs we have all come to recognize and use concerning carbonate diagenetic processes and resulting pore types. The Great Plains physiographic province lies east of the Rocky Mountains and extends from southern Alberta and Saskatchewan nearly to the United States-Mexico border.

Dry and blind valleys, caves, and resurgent springs form major parts of the near-surface ground-water system, and subsurface dissolution of carbonate by ground water is an important factor in the erosion process.
