|Range of values|
|Cretaceous - rocks of the Pee Dee formation||geologic type (age classification)|
|Holocene - surficial sedimentary deposits||geologic type (age classification)|
|Quaternary - Paleochannel Fill||geologic type (age classification)|
|Tertiary - rocks of the Black Mingo group||geologic type (age classification)|
This data set contains polygons that identify the geologic unit type present in outcrop or subcrop along the Long Bay inner shelf. Polygon areas are based upon digital interpretations of Chirp seismic reflection data and coastal plain boreholes. A polygon outlining the inner shelf study area was erased (ArcGIS Analysis toolbox)in iterations using polygons outlining gridded surfaces of Holocene surficial sediment (sedthick_grd)and paleochannel unconformities (paleoch_grd). Outside of the area covered by the Holocene surficial sediment grid, seismic data indicate surficial sediment cover of < 50 cm. In these areas, paleochannel fills, Cretaceous, and Tertiary units are interpreted to crop out at the sea floor, or subcrop near the surface.
