Geology of the Flower Garden Banks, Northwest Gulf of Mexico
Charles F. Levert, Jr., Hershal C. Ferguson, Jr.
The Flower Garden Banks, located 130 miles south-southeast of Galveston, Texas, are the most prominent of a series of topographic highs in the northwest Gulf of Mexico and have been noted and studied for years. These physiographic expressions are related to salt uplift and biohermal development.
The results of this study demonstrate that biohermal development during the present interglacial period occurred in a deep water environment in the northwest Gulf of Mexico. This raises the possibility of the existence of buried fossil reefs which formed within structural and depositional environments similar to those existing today on the outer continental shelf. If these fossil reefs do exist they offer a previously unrecognized exploratory objective on known structural features.
