In central and eastern Alabama, late Santonian to latest Maastrichtian (85 to 67 Ma) paleogeographic changes in both gross depositional-strike mode and specific latitudinal position of shoreline trend are directly related, respectively, to second- and third-order changes of sea level. The third-order sea-level changes are eustatic in origin with minor exceptions. Owing to relative tectonic stability of the Gulf passive margin over the Late Cretaceous eustacy has played a major role in depositional sequence development and thereby promoted a consistent and relatively predictable pattern in the paleogeographic distribution among a restricted number of depositional facies. In the study area,...
