Midnight Volcano is believed to be a buried extinct volcano in southern Humphreys County, is named after the nearby town of Midnight, the time it was active, Midnight Volcano may have been a volcanic island in the Mississippi Embayment.. The volcanic activity in the area is associated with the Monroe Uplift, and igneous rocks in the .

      The Cretaceous volcaniclastic sequence occurs 85 m below the top of the Eutaw Formation and is comparable to rock types penetrated in northwest Mississippi dated at to Ma. The Jurassic igneous rocks comprise an m trachyte flow complex m below the top of the Cotton Valley Formation and were dated at ± 8 Ma. The Cretaceous strata that fill the San Juan Basin of northwestern New Mexico and southwestern Colorado were shortened in a generally N-S to NNSSW direction during the Laramide orogeny. This shortening was the result of compression of the strata between southward indentation of the San Juan Uplift at the north edge of the basin and northward.

      Abstract: Upper Cretaceous strata exposed in the Book Cliffs of east–central Utah are widely used as an archetype for the sequence stratigraphyof marginal-marine and shallow-marine deposits. Their stratal architectures are classically interpreted in sparse, subsurface well data (e.g. Van Wagoner et al. ; Kamola & Van Wagoner Stratigraphy and Depositional History of Subsurface Mesozoic Strata of the Yucatan Peninsula1. Robert H. Marshall, William C. Ward, A. E. Weidie. ABSTRACT. Mesozoic strata underlying the northern Yucatan Peninsula can be divided into at least 16 terrigenous, carbonate, and evaporite lithofacies, based on the study of cores from Pemex Nos. 1, 2.

In the study area, the Cretaceous consists of approximately feet of fine to coarse terrigenous-sourced elastics, Subsurface Cretaceous strata of Mississippi book, and some interbedded evaporites and bioclastic material.

The Cretaceous of Mississippi can be divided into the Upper and Lower Cretaceous Series. The Upper Cretaceous seismic horizon is a major regional unconformity that can be traced over the entire eastern Mississippi Canyon area and represents termination of rapid Cretaceous deposition (Olson et al., ).

It also coincides with a hiatus associated with salt intrusion by many of the diapirs in the area.

Most of the major geologic units include water-bearing strata that form vast aquifers, many of which cross State boundaries and are of regional importance. The deep-lying Jurassic rocks. The Cretaceous strata in the field area also contain North Carolina (Stephenson, ), Mississippi (Stephenson, ; Sohl, and Lower Cretaceous strata occ ur only in the subsurface.

Burial history and thermal maturation analyses have been performed for strata of the Mississippi Interior Salt Basin. The tectonic and depositional histories form the foundation for the modeling.

The Upper Cretaceous strata represent important fresh water aquifers in the southern Tennessee / northern Mississippi / northwest Alabama area, as do the uppermost Paleozoic strata that are either outcropped in the Birmingham, Alabama vicinity, or subcropped by the Upper Cretaceous (or younger) aquifers along a linear trend that extends from.

This dataset consists of shapefiles that are digitized contours of the structure of Cenozoic and late Cretaceous strata along the Gulf and Atlantic Coastal plains from Texas to New Jersey, not including Maryland and Delaware.

Well depths and seismic profiles indicating depth to or elevation of subsurface geologic contacts present in some datasets have also been digitized. The Upper Satal Member, of Danian age, has excellent reservoir characteristics. It has a thickness of m with porosity values in the order of %.

The Cretaceous (/ k r ɪ ˈ t eɪ. ʃ ə s /, krih-TAY-shəs) is a geological period that lasted from about to 66 million years ago (mya).

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. @article{osti_, title = {Sequence stratigraphy of the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian and Turonian) Tuscaloosa Group in the subsurface of the eastern Gulf Coastal plain area}, author = {Mancini, E.A.

One of the most spectacular regions is the Canyonlands-area of east-central Utah which is home to two national parks and one of the longest continuous.Detailed Stratigraphic descriptions of Cretaceous and Paleogene strata were compiled 30 well logs across five cross-sections.
