A program of geophysical mapping and vibracoring was conducted in to better understand the geologic evolution of Apalachicola Bay and its response to sea-level rise. A detailed geologic history could help better understand how this bay may respond to both short-term (for example, storm surge) and long-term sea-level rise. The results of this study were published (Osterman .

      Apalachicola Bay and St. George Sound contain the largest oyster fishery in Florida, and the growth and distribution of the numerous oyster reefs here are the combined product of modern estuarine conditions in the bay and its late Holocene evolution. Sidescan-sonar imagery, bathymetry, high-resolution seismic profiles, and sediment cores show that oyster beds Cited by: Florida has a diverse wealth of geological resources. People have enjoyed the sands of Florida’s beaches for more t years. Prehistoric people in Florida used chert to make weapons and tools. Later indigenous people used clay to create bowls and storage containers. Coquina rock provided a practical building material for Spanish colonists.

      The Geologic History of Florida: Description This course, open to all without prerequisites, addresses the geologic processes through million years of geologic time that have created Florida as we see it today. Florida did not arrive here yesterday, but started at the Earth’s South Pole and has migrated to its present position. Apalachicola, city, seat () of Franklin county, northwestern Florida, lies on Apalachicola Bay (bridged) at the mouth of the Apalachicola River, on the Intracoastal Waterway, about 80 miles ( km) southwest of Tallahassee..

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Schmidt, Walter, Neogene stratigraphy and geologic history of the Apalachicola embayment, Florida. This book offers a lot of information on disparate subjects within the purview of geology, but in many chapters suffers from a drab prolixity beyond the requirements of the subject, and it notably neglects treatment of the very remarkable phosphatized fossil fauna of the Florida peninsula, one of the most outstanding features of Florida geology/5(10).

Geologic unit mapped in Florida: Limited exposures and shallow subsurface occurrences of the Intracoastal Formation have been reported in northwestern Florida (Bay, Franklin, Liberty and Wakulla Counties) (Schmidt, ). In the subsurface, it occurs to the west across the Apalachicola Embayment (Huddlestun, ; Schmidt, ).

The Intracoastal Formation is. Geologic unit mapped in Florida: The Jackson Bluff Formation, named by Vernon and Puri (), occurs at or near the surface in a limited area of the panhandle in Leon, Liberty and Wakulla Counties.

The geologic history of the Eastern Gulf of Mexico (EGoM) is not as thoroughly studied as the rest of the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) because of a ban on commercial drilling until the year within the federal waters of Florida.
