The lower middle Mississippian (lower Greenbrier age) of southeastern West Virginia is composed of the Hillsdale and Denmar (new) formations of the Meramecian series.

These formations are predominantly calcarenites and calcilutites deposited in a transgressing sea along the flank of a linear, southwestward plunging, non-volcanic miogeosyncline Cited by: Volume: 34 () Issue: 5.

A fossil plant discovery from the Price (Pocono) Formation of southeastern West Virginia provides new information on the poorly known compression floras of the Lower Mississippian of North America. The new plant described herein consists of long tapering bipinnate fronds with imbricate basal pinnae, planate apical pinnae, and unlobed Cited by: 4.

The Upper Mississippian Bluefield Formation of the Mauch Chunk Group in southeastern West Virginia is known for its preservation of a variety of invertebrate taxa and early tetrapod trackways, but.

The Mississippian Borden Formation is a mapped bedrock unit in Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, West Virginia, and Tennessee.

It has many members, which has led some geologists to consider it a group (for example in Indiana [8]) rather than a formation (for example in Kentucky [1] [4]).

Boswell, et al. (), does not recognize the Scherr and Foreknobs Formations in the subsurface of West Virginia and thus these formations are reduced from "group" to "formation" as the Greenland Gap Formation.

Rossbach and Dennison () extended the Foreknobs into the Catawba syncline of southwestern Virginia. The namesake cultural trait of the Mound Builders was the building of mounds and other earthworks.

These burial and ceremonial structures were typically flat-topped pyramids or platform mounds, flat-topped or rounded cones, elongated ridges, and sometimes a variety of other were generally built as part of complex villages.

The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES) conducts long-term and project-specific, independent and unbiased analysis of the geology of the state and provide scientific expertise, information, and education to all of West Virginia's stakeholders regarding the coal, natural gas, petroleum, non-fuel resources, environmental concerns, karst, and geologic hazards of the state.
