This database portrays the surface and shallow subsurface geology of the greater Charleston, S.C. region east of 80°30′ west and south of 33°15′ north. The region covers the entirety of Charleston County and portions of Berkeley, Colleton, Dorchester, and Georgetown Counties. Units locally exposed at the surface range in age from middle Eocene to Holocene, but most of the area is covered by Quaternary interglacial deposits. These are, from oldest to youngest, the Okefenokee, Waccamaw(?), Penholoway, Ladson, Ten Mile Hill, and Wando Formations and the Silver Bluff beds. Two cross sections (not included in the database), one running southeast from Harleyville to the coastline on James Island and the other running...

A new genus is described based on fossilized winged fruits from former lake deposits of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, and British Columbia, ranging in age from latest Paleocene to early Middle Eocene. Lagokarpos lacustris McMurran et Manchester gen. et sp. nov. fruits have an elliptical to globose seed body and a conspicuous pair of apical wings with pinnate venation. These windâ€ï¿½dispersed fruits are compared with and distinguished from similar extant winged fruits such as Dipterocarpus Gaertn f. (Dipterocarpaceae), Gyrocarpus Jacq. (Hernandiaceae), and Alberta E. Meyer (Rubiaceae). No modern fruit was found to exhibit the combination of characters seen in Lagokarpos, and we conclude that it represents an extinct...

This dataset accompanies publication '40Ar/39Ar geochronology and petrogenesis of the Table Mountain Shoshonites, Golden, CO', to be published in Rocky Mountain Geology, which analyzed lava flows on North and South Table Mountain in Golden, CO, for argon geochronology and geochemistry.

The Cabin Branch and Cabin Creek (Cappy Avenue) outcrops are located along two small creeks in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The Cabin Branch outcrop contains exposures of silty sands of the Upper Cretaceous Severn Formation, and both outcrops contain Paleocene silty quartz and glauconitic sands of the Danian Brightseat Formation and highly fossiliferous glauconitic quartz sands of the Selandian Aquia Formation. Data from these two locations were generated in order to designate a Principal Reference Section for the Danian age Brightseat Formation. The Cabin Branch outcrop consists of disjunct exposures along an approximately 0.4-mile section of the creek. At the nearby Cabin Creek (Cappy Avenue) outcrop a more...

Collection consist of vertebrates featuring stratigraphic and spatial data. Data is primarily type fossils from the USGS Denver vertebrate Catalog created and maintained by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Data were collected by paleontologist Dr. G. Edward Lewis during his years of service within the USGS Paleontology And Stratigraphy Branch. His catalogs were converted into digital form, Excel and Filemaker Pro database. The Catalog is 1122 fossil localities. His supplementary data has been added whenever possible - sources field map locality points, E&R files with enhanced faunal lists, as well as formal publications. For the complete traditional dataset, please contact Kevin Mckinney (kcmckinney@usgs.gov)....

Isotopic and elemental records of authigenic calcite from lacustrine deposits in the intraforeland basins of Utah were analyzed in an effort to reconstruct the regional paleoclimate, paleohydrology, and paleotopography of the early Cenozoic central North American Cordillera. Isotopic profiles for Paleogene Lakes Uinta, Flagstaff, and Claron show relatively large oxygen isotopic shifts that are diachronous among basins with an ~7{per thousand} decrease in {delta}18Ocalcite values at ca. 45 Ma in Lake Flagstaff, an ~5{per thousand} decrease in {delta}18Ocalcite values between ca. 42 and 35 Ma in Lake Claron, and an ~6{per thousand} decrease in {delta}18Ocalcite values between ca. 44 and 43 Ma in Lake Uinta. We interpret...
The goal of the Atlantic Subsurface Stratigraphic Initiative (ASSI) is to create isopach and structural contour maps for all Coastal Plain formations within the Salisbury Embayment of Maryland and Virginia. Detailed information regarding thicknesses and extent of formations across state boundaries can then be utilized for more accurate documentation of the subaerial extent of aquifers across states. In support of this goal, lower Paleogene sediment elevation and thickness information from approximately 600+ data points from wells, cores, outcrops, and geologic maps were obtained from published and unpublished resources. Analyses started with production of a structure contour map of the unconformable contact of the...

The United States Gulf Coast Basin Curated Wells and Logs Database (CWLDB) is an online repository with stratigraphic information for petroleum wells in the United States portion of the onshore Gulf of Mexico Basin that provides several of the following attributes: a) deep penetrations (generally, total depth of 10,000 feet or more), b) high quality and diverse geophysical well log suites, c) lithostratigraphic logs, d) biostratigraphic units (biozones) and reports, and/or e) core or cuttings samples.

This collection primarily consists of type fossils from the USGS Menlo Park Vertebrate Cenozoic Paleontology Collection created and maintained by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Data were collected by paleontologist Charles A. Repenning during his forty years of service within the USGS Paleontology And Stratigraphy Branch. This collection contains 516 fossil localities from the western United States. This collection was originally created and maintained by U.S. Geological Survey and as of March 2020 has been transferred to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
