bounds the eastern part of the Appalachian Basin Province were thrust westward more than mi over lower Paleozoic sedimentary rocks. The Appalachian Basin province covers an area of about , sq mi. The province is 1, mi long from northeast to southwest and between 20 to mi wide from northwest to southeast. In the Central Appalachian Basin, Upper Mississippian to Lower Pennsylvanian incised-valley fill successions have been well documented (e.g. Englund, , Rice and Schwietering, , Rice and Weir, , Beuthin, , Greb and Chesnut, , Blake et al., , Miller and Eriksson, , Beuthin and Blake, , Grimm et al., , Eriksson and Romans, ) but none of these .

A prominent unconformity, present across shallow shelf areas of the Euramerican paleoequatorial basins, is used to demark the boundary between the Mississippian and Pennsylvanian subsystems. This unconformity, the mid-Carboniferous eustatic event, is generally attributed to a major glacio-eustatic sea-level fall. THE MISSISSIPPIAN-PENNSYLVANIAN UNCONFORMITY IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS 1 RAYMOND SIEVER 2 Urbana, Illinois ABSTRACT A systematic study of the Mississippian-Pennsylvanian unconformity in the southern part of the Illinois basin, using both surface and subsurface data, indicates that many factors were involved in the geologic history of the erosional. In addition, the Upper Mississippian-Lower Pennsylvanian sequence is interrupted by extensive erosion related to epeirogenic upwarping of the region. Biostratigraphically, the systemic boundary is placed at the first occurrence of the floral form Neuropteris pocahontas (D. White) of floral zone 4 as defined by Read and Mamay (). The lower part (Upper Mississippian-Lower Pennsylvanian) of these siliciclastic strata has a general pattern of finer grained rocks overlain by coarser grained rocks, but the upper half (Upper Pennsylvanian-Permian) of these siliciclastic strata does not show this characteristic.
