Four lithostratigraphic associations are recognized in the Oligocene of the southeastern Coastal Plain: (1) an eastern Gulf of Mexico stratigraphic association, (2) a Gulf Trough stratigraphic association, (3) a Florida Bank stratigraphic association and (4), an Atlantic continental shelf. The Geology of Pennsylvania consists of six distinct physiographic provinces, three of which are subdivided into different sections. Each province has its own economic advantages and geologic hazards and plays an important role in shaping everyday life in the state. They are: (listed from the southeast corner to the northwest corner) the Atlantic Coastal Plain Province, the Piedmont Province.

Salt marshes, which represent the final stage in the leveling of marine delta plains or the filling of depressions, embayments, and other irregularities along coasts, are to some extent a measure of coastal stability or by: The Gulf of Mexico includes a broad spectrum of depositional environments from the coast to deep water.

Knowledge of Earth surface processes, landforms, and sedimentary deposits is being used increasingly to interpret the present and past surface environments on other planets (e.g., Mars), and such interpretation requires particular care in view of the different physical, chemical, and biological conditions on other planets.

The coastal plains are underlain by sedimentary rocks of Cretaceous, Tertiary, and Quaternary age. Cretaceous rocks crop out in a discontinuous belt adjacent to the highlands.

They are composed of terrigenous gravels and sandstone near the highlands and grade southward and eastward into beds composed of limestone and marl. Kent HC, van Wyk SJ, Williams SJ () Modern coastal sedimentary environments, Alabama aqnd northwest Florida.

MEMORIAL TO HARRY CHRISTISON KENT Dunes are large masses of wind-blown sand, and are most common in deserted environments, such as the Sahara, and also near area with dunes is called a dune system.

In physical geography, a dune is a hill of loose sand built by aeolian processes (wind) or the flow of water. Dunes occur in different shapes and sizes, formed by interaction with the flow of air or water.

An important concept used in modeling coupled systems is that of a tipping point, a critical point “at which a sudden and dramatic shift to a contrasting dynamical regime may occur” (Scheffer et al.,p.

Coastal restoration in Louisiana requires clean sands for beach and dune restoration, whereas mixed sediments are required to rebuild marshes. The Louisiana coastal erosion problem is especially dire because it occurs on several fronts with the narrowing and overtopping of barrier islands and loss of back barrier bay and interior marshlands.
