Appreciation is expressed to the following in helping to make this work a success. 1) the many members of the Geology Department at East Carolina University, Greenville, N.C. and the Department of Marine Science at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg, Florida who supplied help both at sea and in the laboratory; 2) crews of N.S.F. research vessels EASTWARD, ENDEAVOR, COLUMBUS ISELIN and CAPE HATTERAS; 3) Texasgulf Inc., North Carolina Phosphate Corp., International Minerals and Chemical Corp, Agrico Chemical Corp., W.R. Grace and Co., and the North Carolina State University Minerals Research Lab in Asheville, N.C. who supplied professional expertise and analytical capabilities; and 4) the ongoing programs associated with the International Geologic Correlation Program (I.G.C.P.) 156 on Phosphorites sponsored by UNESCO and TUGS. Finally, we would like to acknowledge the Duke/University of North Carolina Oceanographic Consortium who funded the ship time for this field trip and supplied their personnel and facilities.
Figures & Tables
Southeastern United States–Guidebook is comprised of twelve field trips that were organized for the Third Annual Midyear Meeting held in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1986. The spectrum of geologic time represented in the Upper Precambrian, Lower Paleozoic, Mesozoic, Cenozoic and the very Recent. The geologic provinces are the Valley and Ridge, Blue Ridge Mountains, Piedmont, and the Coastal Plain. Besides North Carolina, trips include Virginia, South Carolina and West Virginia.
