- This core workshop will be held at the Michigan Repository for Research and Education (MGGRE) of Western Michigan University. The workshop will focus on the Carboniferous of the Michigan Basin with special emphasis on the lithostratigraphy and chronostratigraphy associated with the Mississippian-Pennsylvanian unconformity. Analysis of core material on the basis of dominant lithofacies and biostratigraphy will be explored using a collection of cores from the southern Michigan Basin. Recently identified Chesterian strata from subsurface cores will be examined. Cores that illustrate the variability of the Kaskaskia/Absaroka megasequence boundary (Mississippian/Pennsylvanian systemic boundary) will also be on display.
