Abstract

The Paleocene-Eocene strata of the Gulf Coastal Plain occupy the general area from southwestern Texas eastward through Alabama and north as an arc in Arkansas Kentucky, and Tennessee. The greater mass of the formations of this region are shallow water, marine clastics- arenaceargillaceous, calcareous, and glauconitic. Alternating stages of marine and nonmarine de posits (with fossils of land plants) characterize the sediments in the area
