Discussion of the Type Section of the Clayton Formation of Alabama

David D. Reimers


Fluegeman (1989) describes a lithologic section consisting of sands and clays as the lithostratotype of the Clayton Formation of Alabama, rather than a predominantly limestone section as described by Reimers (1986) (figure I). The section given by Fluegeman contains only a single one meter unit of limestone and seems to be the same section described by Reinhardt and Gibson (1980) (figure 2).
