Conference paper


Studies of Holocene coastal sedimentary environments provide a direct key to the interpretation of sediments deposited in coastal and nearshore marine environments of the Atlantic continental shelf during the past 100,000,000 years (Fig. 5-1). Sequences of sediments and patterns and distributions of sedimentary structures can be used to form models for the interpretation of transgressive sequences along the entire Atlantic Coast.
