Abstract

The data suggest that the shelf edge of the northern Gulf of Mexico is constructed from deltas deposited during falling sea level and low-standards, from sediment deposited in valleys during rising sea level, and from highstand clay. Late Wisconsinan deltaic and overlying incised-valley-fill sediment was derived from an ancestral river system that drained the southeastern United States. -from Authors
