GM23 Geologic Map of the Seaford West and Seaford East Quadrangles, Delaware
Publication Type:
Geologic Map
Publication Date:

Authors:
Tomlinson, J.L., Ramsey, K.W., Andres, A.S.
Abstract:

The geological history of the surficial units of the Seaford East Quadrangle and the Delaware portion of the Seaford West Quadrangle was the result of deposition of the Beaverdam Formation and its subsequent modification by erosion and deposition related to sea-level fluctuations during the Pleistocene. The geology reflects this complex history by the cut and fill geometry of the middle and late Pleistocene deposits incised into the Beaverdam Formation. The geology is further complicated by periglacial activity that produced dune deposits and the Carolina Bays in the map area, which modified the land surface.
