ABSTRACT Detailed correlations in the subsurface and outcrop of northern Alabama document that Mississippian clastic rocks between the Tuscumbia Limestone and the Bangor Limestone are thickest along a band across the northern and eastern parts of the Black Warrior basin. The interval thins markedly southeastward across a northeast-trending line in Monroe County, Mississippi, and Lamar County, Alabama from more than 350 ft to less than 150 ft. The line of abrupt thinning has a right-angle bend… CONTINUE READING
