The purpose of this field guide is to show the principal environments of elastic deposition and their related sediments and to discuss the processes which deposit these sediments. The principal environments and related sediment types to be observed are:
A. Alluvial: (alluvial plain, floodbasin, meander belt, point bar, natural levee and channel). Stops 1-3
B. Deltaic: (deltaic plain, channel, deltaic marsh and lake and the delta front). Stops 4-6
C. Coastal interdeltaic: (barrier island, beach, lagoon, tidal channel, tidal delta and marsh). Stops 7, 8
D. Marine: (inner neritic--including transgressive and regressive deposition resulting from marine and deltaic processes). Stops 6, 7
The guide is presented in four parts. Part I includes a summary of the geology of the Late Quaternary of southeast Texas and the northern Gulf of Mexico. Part II is concerned with the alluvial environments and sediments of the Brazos River near Richmond, Texas. Part III includes the deltaic environments and sediments of the Brazos River near Freeport, Texas. Part IV includes the coastal interdeltaic environments and sediments near Galveston, Texas.
