Abstract

Study of the Cretaceous Tomhigbee member of the Eutaw formation of Mississippi indicates that the materials of the formation were derived chiefly from the crystalline complex of the Southern Appalachians under conditions of rather low relief and mature weathering. The materials are considered to have suffered relatively short transportation and to have been deposited above wave base in an agitated and very shallow transgressing sea.
