ABSTRACT

There is no abstract for this chapter.

RATIONALE FOR THIS VOLUME

The Michigan Basin is a classic intracratonic sedimentary basin, one that has played a significant role in our fundamental understanding of geological processes active in such basins, and it has been an important resource for oil and gas, various economic minerals, and water and coal for more than 100 years. Despite the geological and natural resource signifi cance of the basin, there has not been a “special volume” dedicated to the Michigan Basin in nearly 25 years, when GSA Special Paper 256: Early Sedimentary Evolution of the Michigan Basin, edited by P.A. Catacosinos and P.A. Daniels Jr., was published in 1991. Since that time, new advancements and techniques in the geological sciences, particularly the utilization of high-resolution sequence stratigraphy to better constrain the temporal aspect of stratigraphic successions, have led to a new and much more comprehensive understanding of the Paleozoic sedimentary packages of the Michigan Basin.
