Abundant data from spore studies of the Colchester (no. 2) Coal Member and from investigations of plant compressions in the Francis Creek Shale provide an opportunity to compare the flora of the coal with that of the overlying shale in the northeastern part of the Illinois by: With a careful tap from a rock hammer, a split nodule may reveal a beautifully preserved seed-fern leaf, a shrimp or millipede, or even a Tully monster. This is the Carboniferous-age Mazon Creek locality (or more accurately a set of localities called the Francis Creek Shale, of which Mazon Creek itself is one).

FA 3 (F1, Sr, and St) depositional environments are associated with shallow lakes in a flood plain setting. The Upper Member is characterised by facies similar to the Lower Member, laminated, grey and black carbonaceous shale and coal of FA 5 (Fc, C) and sandy shale/mudstone of FA 4 (F1, Sh, St, and C).Cited by: 3. (b) Schematic stratigraphic sequence of the lower metres of the Francis Creek Shale Member and the associated members of the Carbondale Formation. The fossiliferous concretions can be found in the lower 3–8 m of the Francis Creek Shale Member. The fossiliferous Mazon Creek concretions are found in the lower 3–5 m of the Francis Creek by: 8.

The focus of these notes is on the use of primary sedimentary structures and stratification sequence as tools for interpretation of depositional environment of clastic sediments, emphasizing advances in understanding that the authors judge to be important.

To accomplish the primary objective, several topics have been selected. The table below includes specific environments where various types of sediments are deposited and common rocks, structures, and fossils that aid in deducing the depositional environment from examining a sedimentary rock outcrop.

Although this is not a complete list, it is a good introduction to depositional environments. Continental. Transitional. Sedimentology, Depositional Environments and Sequence Stratigraphy The articles included are a compilation of published documents taken from the internet and have been put together to try to provide an introductory overview of Sedimentology, Depositional Environments and Sequence Stratigraphy.

broad kinds of depositional environments you think you understand. Example: Look a sandstone–shale succession and decide that it represents deposits of a large meandering river. Here’s a list of what you can look for in a sediment rock or a sedimentary bed that might tell you something about depositional environment: grain size grain shape.

Siltstone is deposited in a similar environment to shale, but it often occurs closer to the shoreline of an ancient delta, lake or sea, where calmer currents cause less suspension of particles.

Siltstone commonly occurs adjacent to sandstone deposits -- that is, near beaches and delta edges where sand is deposited. Carboniferous strata provide an excellent example on which to test the application of genetic stratigraphic and sequence stratigraphic concepts.

Both approaches are employed in the evaluation of the coal-bearing strata of the Black Warrior basin, south-eastern USA.
