Title

Palynofacies and thermal maturation of lower paleozoic sedimentary rocks of the Reelfoot Rift and adjacent platform, Southeast Missouri

Abstract

"The objectives of this study, therefore, are: 1) to examine and identify the organic debris from fifty-two samples collected from seven boreholes in the Reelfoot Rift and the Viburnum Trend; 2) to assess the thermal maturation of Upper Cambrian and Lower Ordovician sediments based on visual coloration of acritarchs in comparison with published color standards; 3) to identify palynofacies assemblages; and 4) to make paleoenvironmental and paleobathymetric intrepretations based on these assemblages."--Introduction, page 2.
