Western Louisiana
Transgressive Systems Tract

During the early, rapid transgession the Western Louisiana delta backstepped and the Trinity-Sabine incised valley was filled with fluvial sands and estuarine sediments. Farther east, in the main part of the western Louisiana study area, the transgressoin is characterized by primarily muddy shelf deposits.
