HOSMAN REGIONAL AQUIFER-SYSTEM ANALYSIS-GULF COASTAL PLAIN U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROFESSIONAL PAPER G UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON: Cited by:   1. Introduction. Ancient wave-dominated coastal systems are traditional targets for the oil industry, as they often contain sand-rich, laterally-continuous deposits with good reservoir potential (e.g., Howell et al., ; Catuneanu, ; Rahman et al., ; Raef et al., ).Subsurface prediction of heterogeneities within these reservoirs is commonly based in Quaternary analogs, using the Cited by: 4.   The subsurface con- for calculation of subsidence, that the base of the figuration shows that Holocene deltaic deposits and underlying transgressive silt and sand unit, prodelta (,, yr B.P.) is younger, by at least years, than the top of the underlying transgres- together, thicken between cores Y-7 and Y, a sive silt and sand.

SUBSURFACE CONDITIONS Regional Geology and Soils The site is located within Georgia’s Coastal Plain Geologic Province. The soils of the Southern Coastal Plain Physiographic Province of Georgia are primarily composed of Pleistocene to Holocene age deposits. The soils in the coastal plain are the result of sediment deposition in a.

Glaciers periodically covered much of northern North America during the Pleistocene epoch ( million years ago to the present), although Georgia remained ice-free. The seas alternately flooded and retreated from the land along the coast as the glaciers advanced and receded. The Tartar aquifer unit, is located at the SSO of the city of Boujdour, at a distance of nearly 86 km, and crossed (in its western part) by the National Road N1 connecting the towns of Boujdour and Lagouira passing through the vicinity of the city of Dakhla (PK40). It is exploited by rural settlements for domestic use (especially the inhabitants of fishing villages) and livestock watering.

Many hazardous waste sites in the south Louisiana Gulf Coast have been emplaced in sediments of Plio-Pleistocene to Recent age. Because of the fining upward nature of these regressive-transgressive fluvial-deltaic sequences and the purported confining capabilities of the shallow clay layers within them, this area would seem to be ideal for the location of surface waste landfills.   The goals of 22 this paper are to: (1) synthesize the knowledge of the age of Pliocene and Pleistocene marine deposits of the Coastal Plain; (2) correlate these deposits with more continuous deep-sea marine sections; and (3) outline major oceanographic events of the North Atlantic Ocean during the last 5 million years (m.y.) reflected in the. Until such time as a study of the outcrop and the subsurface is successfully completed it seems preferable to refer to the subsurface deposits as Oligocene Series or Oligocene undifferentiated. The Oligocene Series increase in thickness from a few feet in updip areas to an average of feet over most of the central part of the Coastal Plain.
