About This Publication
This map illustrates the geology of the area along the northwest margin of Lavaca Bay. Here, deltas of Garcitas and Placedo Creeks are prograding into Lavaca Bay. Geology of the area consists of sediments deposited within a Pleistocene fluvial–deltaic system, and Holocene bay–estuary and fluvial–deltaic systems. Pleistocene deposits represent Beaumont fluvial–deltaic deposition that lie about 10 mi northwest (landward) of Pleistocene barrier deposits. A large Pleistocene sand-rich, fluvial-channel system of the Beaumont Formation lies across the area. Holocene deposits include a variety of deposits: alluvium, terrace, levee, abandoned-channel, bay margin, bay-margin beach, and delta plain.
