Fondren Science Series


The field work for this report was done during June, July, and August, 1964, by the Shuler Museum of Paleontology of Southern Methodist University under National Park Service Contract No. RO 330608. The Quaternary deposits of the East Fork of the Trinity River were mapped in the area of the basin of the proposed Forney Reservoir and the general patterns of bedrock geology outlined. All excavational and erosional exposures of terrace, floodplain, and bedrock deposits were prospected for molluscan and vertebrate fossils. Three terraces above the present floodplain are recognized.
