As the only sedimentary unit in the northern Mississippi Embayment deposited between the end of the Eocene and the onset of glaciation, its origin provides ground truth about conditions that.

Preserved in the Mississippi Embayment are sediments that were deposited within an early Late Cretaceous epeiric sea that invaded the continent as a result of regional subsidence [1]. The Mississippi Embayment continued to be active during the Quaternary. Divergence and spreading ceased.

However, the thin crust initially caused by stretching and rifting, fails from time to time as the North American continent drifts westward.

When this happens, faulting occurs and energy is released causing earthquakes.
