Title: Stratigraphy of Coastal Plain of Georgia

Author(s): C. Wythe Cooke (2), Arthur C. Munyan (3)


The senior writer has recently completed a revision of the stratigraphy of the Coastal Plain of Georgia, which it is expected will form part of a report on the geology of the state to be published by the Department of Natural Resources of Georgia. The map accompanying it shows the outcrop of formations ranging in age from Upper Cretaceous (Tuscaloosa) to Recent. The overlap of successively younger formations toward the east is conspicuous. The major structural features to be inferred from the distribution of formations are a broad shallow basin centering off the southern part of the coast and a flattening of the strata (probably without reversal of dip) in the western part of the state.
