The Carboniferous in Oklahoma US

Early Carboniferous rocks (Mississippian) are well exposed across a wide area in far northeastern Oklahoma and in several narrow belts in the southeastern part of the state. Thick limestone layers deposited at this time represent the last widespread flooding of the North American continent. Toward the end of the Mississippian, portions of the ...

I) the Carboniferous Limestone occurs in the synclinoria of Dinant and Namur, resting on Devonian, and overlain by Coal Measures. The smaller folds in the great synclinorium of Dinant give rise to extensive outcrops of the limestone near Dinant itself, whence the name Dinantian (= whole of the Carboniferous Limestone) has been derived.

Carboniferous (Tournaisian-Visean) consists of thin condensed series, widely extended laterally, and deposited on a stable platform. The Devonian-Carboniferous boundary is found within white, bio-clastic limestone (called Baleas Formation, Candamo Formation or Las Portillas Formation, depending on the sector) deposited throughout most of the

Thick layer of limestone was present below the 648 m surface, the thickness is varies from hole to hole (29 m-30 m) and contains 9294% CaCO-3. If the thickness of limestone occurs throughout the whole basin, the reserve of limestone will be around 25000 million ton which may be the largest underground limestone deposit in the world.

Carboniferous rocks crop out southwards from the Scottish border through the Pennines and into the Midlands, in Wales, and in the south-west peninsula. Perhaps more than any other geological system, this is the unit that has been plundered for our economic development providing the materials that fuelled the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries — coal, iron, refractory clay, limestone, …

The Carboniferous Period

The Carboniferous Period

The Carboniferous Period is famous for its vast swamp forests, such as the one depicted here. Such swamps produced the coal from which the term Carboniferous, or carbon-bearing, is derived. The Carboniferous Period lasted from about 359.2 to 299 million years ago* during the late Paleozoic Era. The term Carboniferous comes from England, in reference to the rich deposits of coal that occur there.
