Documenting the Sedimentary and Stratigraphic Transition between the Middle/Upper Flood Event Divisions and the Lower/Middle Ice Age Divisions in and Surrounding Providence Canyon State Park, Stewart County, Georgia (U.S.A.)

Providence Canyon State Park, Stewart County, Georgia (U.S.A.), and the surrounding vicinity provide an excellent location in which to define sediments and fossils within a Bible-based framework of Earth history. The results of this investigation indicate that the strata reflect the transition from a middle-shelf subaqueous marine setting to subaerial conditions. Within the Flood framework, these sediments and strata record the transition from the Middle/Upper Flood Event Divisions to the Lower/Middle Ice Age Divisions. The stratigraphy within the study area indicates that Floodwater retreated from this part of Georgia as a function of sea-level decline and the concomitant uplift of the coastal plain across southwestern Georgia.
