Description:

Students are provided with well data in the form of chrono-stratigraphic (time-rock) units, and their depths in each of 3 wells oriented normal to depositional strike. Preparation of a cross-section necessitates recognition of major correlative unconformities. Preparation of a correlation diagram (vertical axis = time) illustrates the spatial and temporal extent of each unconformity and sequence. Sequences are more complete seaward, and unconformities are more extensive landward. Students can apply this information to the North Carolina Geologic Map where each sequence and unconformity may be recognized.
