Title: Oscillation Chart

Author(s): Merle C. Israelsky (2)


A chart is presented, based on the foraminiferal content of shaker samples ranging from 6,000 to 11,760 feet from a well in the Lirette field, Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. It is contended that the chart shows relative changes in depth of water at this geographic position during the deposition of the "Miocene" penetrated by the drill. The method of building the chart, the reasoning behind the method, its possible uses and limitations are discussed.
