Title: Micropaleontology and Stratigraphy of a Deep Well at Niceville, Okaloosa County, Florida

Author(s): R. Hendee Smith (2)


In the type area of the Florida upper and middle Miocene section there is still considerable doubt as to the thickness and dip of the beds and the ranges of many of the microfossils. Drilling of a water well in the southern part of Okaloosa County has made it possible to establish some strike and dip control of the formations in addition to first occurrences of some typical forms in the column. It serves as a useful point of departure for correlation of wells in other parts of the Gulf Coast, as it aids in establishing the relative position of points on the paleontological time scale, which previously were known only from inferential evidence.
