Radiographic Examination of Variations in Barrier Island Facies; Sapelo Island, Georgia (1)

James D. Howard


Abrupt lateral variations which characterize the facies of present day barrier islands are the result of differences in texture and in physical and biogenic sedimentary structures. Facies variations associated with sedimentary environments at Sapelo Island, Georgia, illustrate these differences. X ray radiography is a valuable method for examining and illustrating facies characteristics because the technique accentuates subtle as well as obvious sedimentary structures and fabrics.
