Abstract: Depositional environments in boring 93 UES taken at Test Section III, Atchafalaya Levee System, La., were identified as alternate intervals of poorly drained swamp and lake. The swamp deposits are distorted and fractured adjacent to rotted organic matter. Lake deposits were of shallow deposition and included thin deltaic facies. The deposits are mostly clay. There are delicate evidences of layering, some nodular and plate-like carbonate concentrations, and some churning by invertebrates. Pronounced shear planes are present as the result of differential compaction. NOTE: This file is large. Allow your browser several minutes to download the file.
