Cyclic Deposition of Neogene Phosphorites in the Aurora Area North Carolina and their Possible Relationship to Global Sea-Level Fluctuations 2012 56143 The Neogene phosphorites in the Aurora Area occur within the Miocene Pungo River Formation (units A B C and D) and the Pliocene Yorktown Formation (lower and upper units). These units are characterized by the following patterns of sedimentation. 1) T...
Material Transport in Coastal North Carolina following Hurricanes: A Remote-Sensing Perspective of Hurricane Floyd's Impact 2013 56143 A hydrograph of the Tar River depicts an unprecedented amount of rainfall during Hurricane Floyd. This excess rainfall transported carbon in the form of dissolved organic carbon or Colored Dissolved Organic Matter (CDOM). It is important to understan...
Miocene Seismic Stratigraphy Structural Framework and Sea-Level Cyclicity: North Carolina Continental Shelf 2012 56143 Preliminary interpretations of over 1000 km of high-resolution seismic reflection data supplemented by over 100 9-m vibracores have delineated the shallow stratigraphic and structural framework for several Miocene depositional sequences overlying the...
North Carolina’s Coasts in Crisis: A Vision For The Future 2011 56143
The North Carolina Outer Banks Barrier Islands: A Field Trip Guide to the Geology Geomorphology and Processes 2011 56143
Past Present and Future Inlets 2011 56143
Shoreline Change Within the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine System North Carolina 2011 56143
Stratigraphy and Petrology of the Pungo River Formation Central Coastal Plain of North Carolina 2012 56143 Up to 30 m of phosphatic sediments of early and middle Miocene Pungo River Formation were deposited in the north-south-trending Aurora Embayment of North Carolina. These sediments thin to approximately 10 to 15 m over the Cape Lookout High a pre-Mioc...
Synthesis of Phosphatic Sediment-Faunal Relationships Within the Pungo River Formation: Paleoenvironmental Implications 2012 56143 The lower part of the Pungo River Formation in the Aurora Embayment (units A and B) consists of phosphorite sands and interbedded dolomites that grade southward into calcareous quartz sand (unit CC) associated with a pre-Miocene topographic high.
