Landforms of the Louisiana Coastal Plain 3. Introduction. The geology of Louisiana is very recent, at least at the surface. While older hard rock can be found in northwest Louisiana, the geologic units of the Louisiana coastal plain consist of poorly consolidated sedimentary deposits of varying age, compaction, sediment type, and origin.

Coastal environments may be in excess of a hundred meters deep (fjords) or may extend several meters above sea level in the form of dunes. Some coastal environments are well protected and are not subjected to high physical energy except for occasional storms, whereas beaches and tidal inlets are continuously modified by waves and currents.

Environments in which peat is forming today are present throughout coastal Louisiana and include small coastal basins between distributary channels and broader inland flood basins separated by major Mississippi River courses.

Coastwise marsh belts between beach ridges of the chenier plain contain a relatively thin surface mantle of peat. Located to the west of the Mississippi Delta Plain, the Louisiana Chenier plain consists of a series of transgressive and regressive sandy ridges that are separated and underlain by prograded mud-rich deposits.

Coastal Louisiana has been a long-term depository of sediment; much of the delta plain sits above a 10–15 km thick pile of Mesozoic. Sedimentary Environments Sedimentary rocks give us important information about what the world was like millions of years ago, such as the location of the source, or provenance area, from which the sediment originated, the kinds of source rocks, and the paleocurrents (the direction of flow that deposited the sedimentary grains and how the.

from the Late Cretaceous period to the present coast. Table shows a fairly detailed list of depositional environments. There are various problems with this list: • There’s lots of overlap among the different environments.

• It’s still not a complete list. • Some of the environments on the list have been much more common and important in the sedimentary. Paleontology in Louisiana refers to paleontological research occurring within or conducted by people from the U.S.

state of ps of fossil-bearing sediments and sedimentary rocks within Louisiana are quite rare. In part, this is because Louisiana’s semi-humid climate results in the rapid weathering and erosion of any exposures and the growth of thick vegetation that conceal any.

Paluxy deposits were derived from sedimentary rocks to the north, and they accumulated in shoreface and coastal plain environments associated with an irregular southward regression of the shoreline. Preserved in the sedimentary mass are three major depositional systems: a centrally located delta system, a fluvial system in the north, and a strandplain system in the west.

The physical features of a sedimentary environment include water depth and the velocity and persistence of currents.

Coastal Plain sediment forms a wedge of gently dipping layers of sediment and sedimentary rock that thickens towards the Gulf of Mexico, overlying older bedrock (Figure ).

Region 3: The Coastal Plain The Coastal Plain is underlain by thousands of feet of sedimentary rock and sediments that were deposited in both marine and terrestrial environments.

Strata underlying this region consist of limestones, shales, and sandstones that were deposited in river valleys as well as in shallow seas, deltas, bays, and beaches. The West Gulf Coastal Plain encompasses the easternmost portion of Texas along the Gulf of Mexico, and the state of Louisiana.

The West Gulf Coastal Plain is the westernmost part of the larger Gulf-Atlantic Coastal Plain, which includes eastern Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, and portions of the eastern states along the Atlantic Ocean.

The oldest Coastal Plain fossils are found farthest inland, reaching to the fall line, where the Piedmont meets the Coastal Plain. Sequentially younger fossils tend to be located closer to the present coasts, following the younger ages of r, some of the youngest fossils (from the Late Paleogene and Pleistocene) are also found in deposits lying on top of older sediments.Barrier islands are coastal landforms and a type of dune system that are exceptionally flat or lumpy areas of sand that form by wave and tidal action parallel to the mainland coast.

They usually occur in chains, consisting of anything from a few islands to more than a dozen. They are subject to change during storms and other action, but absorb energy and protect the coastlines and create areas.One geologic environment suitable for the storage of commercially exploitable geothermal heat at accessible depths is a radiogenic source buried beneath an insulating blanket of sediments of low thermal conductivity, such as the sedimentary rocks of the Coastal Plain .
