Abstract

The Frio Formation of the Texas Coastal Plain consists of two major delta systems and an interdeltaic wave-dominated shore-zone system, all fronted by the shelf margin and continental slope (fig. 1). Depositional style of the Frio is amazingly similar to that of the Quaternary fig. 2). However, the major river entered along the Rio Grande rather than the Mississippi axis.
