|Geologic age||upper Paleocene, Selandian|
Unconsolidated > Coarse-detrital > Sand (Bed)Sand, quartz, medium-grained, well- to poorly sorted, dusky-yellow to pale-gray; weathers orange brown or red brown, typically very glauconitic and clayey near base; glauconite decreases up section. Feldspar and mica are minor sand constituents.
Sedimentary > Clastic > Sandstone > Arenite > Calcarenite (Bed)Calcarenite or coquina, characterized by an abundance of bryozoans, occurs locally along the western belt.
Sedimentary > Carbonate > Limestone > Coquina (Bed)Calcarenite or coquina, characterized by an abundance of bryozoans, occurs locally along the western belt.
Unconsolidated > Fine-detrital > Clay (Bed)typically very glauconitic and clayey near base
Unconsolidated > Fine-detrital > Silt (Bed)Upper beds of the Vincentown are as much as 12 m (39 ft) thick and are mostly silty, darkgray to green-gray, massive, glauconite sand that contains a small percentage of quartz.
