About This Publication
The geologic map of the Rincon Bend Quadrangle illustrates the geology of the Aransas and Mission rivers/deltas area at Copano Bay, Texas Gulf of Mexico Coast. The map of this quadrangle depicts part of the Aransas River and delta. Geology of the area partly consists of upland Pleistocene Lissie fluvial sand, silt, clay, and lesser gravel, as well as Beaumont clay, silt, sand, and minor gravel of fluvial–deltaic interdistributary and distributary settings. Sand-rich channelfacies of the Lissie and Beaumont Formations are displayed. Modern to Holocene fluvial floodplain, levee, crevasse splay, point bar, clay dune, channel-bar, and terrace deposits occur within the Aransas River valley. Delta-plain deposits and tidal flats are adjacent to Copano Bay.
