Organic and Trace-Element Content of Holocene Sediments in<br>Two Estuarine Bays, PAMLICO SOUND Area, North Carolina -<BR>USGS Bulletin 1314-E

Many sequences of ancient sedimentary rocks, perplexing in both vertical and lateral relationships, have strikingly similar counterparts in modern sediments in several coastal areas of the United States. The Pamlico Sound area of eastern North Carolina (fig. 1) is an excellent example of an area where diverse and complex sediment types and relationships can be studied today. Two small bay-type estuaries, Jarrett Bay and South River, were selected in the Pamlico Sound area as representative of an environment, relatively rich in organic matter, that might yield knowledge on the genesis of organic fuels.
