Geology and Tectonic History of the<BR>Lower CAPE FEAR RIVER Valley, Southeastern North Carolina -<BR>USGS Professional Paper 1466-A

The Cape Fear River is a major Piedmont-draining river system that flows across the Atlantic Coastal Plain in North Carolina. A detailed study of stratigraphy, mineralogy, and geomorphology was undertaken to assess the geology and tectonic history of the valley and the implications for late Cenozoic tectonism in the region. The deposits of these Piedmont-draining river systems cover large areas of the Coastal Plain and are therefore geologically and culturally significant and worthy of further study. The data from the Cape Fear River valley await integration with future studies of other rivers in the area. Includes 18"x22" geologic map at 1:250,000 scale. By David R. Soller, 1988. 60 pages.
