Three surface and subsurface sections of Lower Cretaceous strata from the Gulf Coast are correlated with three comparable sections in Oman. Detailed fossil ranges and graphic correlation methods resulted in a biostratigraphic data base that could be related to the geologic time scale.

Two events of relative sea-level rise are synchronous in the Gulf Coast basin and the southeastern Arabian platform and may represent eustatic sea-level rises. The intra-Aptian rise began about 115.8 Ma and in many places is represented by a sharp lithologic change, by submarine hardgrounds, or by onlap. Deep-water deposition resumed from 115.2 to 113.9 Ma....
