Harris, Frank R. Ettensohn, Jill E. Carnahan-Jarvis. The Mississippian System in Kentucky is represented by mostly marine sedimentary rocks which originally extended across the entire State. These rocks record a widespread shallowing of the seas during Mississippian time, with basinal and prodeltaic shales and siltstones succeeded by shelf limestones and dolomites and coastal sandstones and shales.

Mississippian Oolites and Petroleum Reservoirs in the United States—An Overview 3 stratigraphy is complex, but the western portion is primarily represented by the Joana Limestone (Osagian to Meramecian), whereas the eastern por­ tion has terminology similar to the San Juan and Paradox basins of the Four Corners area and to the Uinta Size: 1MB.

Geologic unit mapped in Arizona: Brown to dark gray sandstone grades upward into green and gray shale, overlain by light to medium gray or tan limestone and dolostone.

This unit includes the Tapeats Sandstone, Bright Angel Shale, Muav Limestone, Temple Butte Formation and Redwall Limestone in northern Arizona, and the Bolsa Quartzite, Abrigo Formation, Martin Formation, and Escabrosa.

Compression associated with the formation of the Transcontinental Arch and the Acadian Mountains initiated subsidence in the Michigan Basin and lead to a depositional switch in the Michigan Basin from an oxic shallow-water carbonate platform (Traverse Group and Squaw Bay Limestone) to a deep anaerobic sea floor and the beginning of Upper Devonian Antrim : Bryan J.

The study interval (Little Valley-Hillsdale to the Glenray/Cove Creek Limestone), overlies Early Mississippian siliciclastics of the Price-Borden formations, and is overlain by and interfingers with the upper Mississippian Mauch Chunk siliciclastics.

There are no Chesterian sediments in the Michigan Basin. The Mississippian sediments accumulated conformably on Devonian strata but are overlain with disconformity by Pennsylvanian and, very locally, Jurassic strata.

The Kinderhookian, Osagian, and Meramecian series record a decreasing rate of Michigan Basin subsidence through time. Rock-Stratigraphic Classification. A rock-stratigraphic unit is a subdivision of rocks that is delimited on the basis of lithologic characteristics (American Comm.

Strat. Nomenclature, ). Rock-stratigraphic units are divided into groups, formations, members, and beds. A formation is the most fundamental and useful unit in this division. The Mississippian is a subperiod in the geologic timescale or a subsystem of the geologic record. It is the earliest/lowermost of two subperiods of the Carboniferous period lasting from roughly ± to ± million years ago.

The objective is to evaluate the porosity, permeability, mineralogy, and grain textures and distribution from a Mississippian age core interval and to determine characteristics rock facies of the interval.
