A stratigraphic study of a portion of the lower Trinity group in north-central Texas. The Cretaceous is a gently (~1°) eastward dipping series of beach and river sands, limestones, shale, and chalk; CS = Early Cretaceous Comanche Series; GS = mostly Late Cretaceous Gulf Series. Note that the Cretaceous sediments overlie much older Pennsylvanian sediments above a major unconformity. Figure by R. J. Stern. The study sites represent a depositional transect across the LPMS Midcontinent Shelf (Figure 1b): the Xenia section (Figures 3 and 4a) is located closest to the shelf margin in southeastern Kansas, the KC 63rd Street section (Figure 4b) is located in a mid‐shelf area, and the Winterset section (Figure 4c) is located in a proximal (i.e.

Bryozoans may also be collected from some Cretaceous and Tertiary beds, but their remains are small and fragmental and they are easily overlooked.

The Llano Uplift is a geologically ancient, low geologic dome that is about 90 miles ( km) in diameter and located mostly in Llano, Mason, San Saba, Gillespie, and Blanco counties, consists of an island-like exposure of Precambrian igneous and metamorphic rocks surrounded by outcrops of Paleozoic and Cretaceous sedimentary their widest, the exposed Precambrian rocks.Meter-scale transgressive-regressive cycles of the subsurface Cisco Group are composed of marine and nonmarine carbonate and siliciclastic rocks deposited on the Eastern shelf of the Midland basin during Late Pennsylvanian and Early Permian time.

Five cycle types are characterized by thickness, magnitude, order, and principal lithofacies.During the Late Pennsylvanian lowstands, transport direction of clastics was probably si- milar to that of the Middle Pennsylvanian (Fig.

6). However, the Ouachita Trough was de-stroyed by collisional tectonics during the late Middle and Late Pennsylvanian and could not have been the final destination of the Appalachian clastics.
