... conditions of the Oligocene, when the withdrawal of the sea exposed the recently deposited Eocene Wilson Bluff Limestone for over ∼10 m.y. Several major conduits probably developed at this time. These were flooded by the return of the sea, which finally retreated in the late Miocene followed by regional...

... Abstract In the first application of the developing plate tectonic theory to the pre-Pangaea world 50 years ago, attempting to explain the origin of the Paleozoic Appalachian–Caledonian orogen, J. Tuzo Wilson asked the question: ‘Did the Atlantic close and then reopen?’. This question formed...

... at the Limestone Mountain outlier in Houghton County, where Colville (1983) identified Llandoverian carbonates that may be time equivalent to some portion of the Burnt Bluff Group. With the paucity of data, the supposition that the Lime Island Formation exhibited lateral facies changes to the north cannot...

... are imaged to display their interactions with one another, providing new insights into the tectonic evolution of southeastern North America. Two complete Wilson cycles and the beginning of a third are recorded in the lithosphere of southeastern North America ( Hatcher, 1978 , 1987 , 2004 , 2010...

.... Since the discovery in 1936 of the Sulphur Bluff field, subsequent Paluxy testing resulted in the discovery of Mitchell Creek field in 1948 and the small Birthright field in 1954. In 1958, production from the Smackover limestone of Jurassic age was established on the Sulphur Bluff fault. These fields...

... record. In the oldest cycle, the sediments are marginal marine siliciclastics with several very brief transgressions with marine microfaunas and rare macrofossils but no limestones. Extratropical carbonates begin abruptly in the late middle Eocene series at the base of the second cycle and the Wilson...
