    TI‑ Spatial distribution of Miocene foraminifera at Calvert Cliffs, Maryland JN‑ Smithsonian Contributions to Paleobiology PY‑ NO‑ 68 PG‑   Organized by stratigraphic geology, the book covers fossils of the Eastover, St Mary's, Choptank, and Calvert Formations. It illustrates 24 collecting sites and fossil exposures, showing details of in situ specimens, along with maps of 4 Miocene paleoseas and detailed stratigraphic columns for Maryland and northern Virginia.

    Sparse lithic erratics (pebbles to cobbles) sampled from three shallow marine strata deposited during the Middle Miocene Climate Optimum (MMCO, ca. 16–14 Ma) along the western Atlantic margin (exposed in the Calvert Cliffs, Maryland) suggest transport and deposition not from ice but from the roots of trees uprooted during floods and carried out to by:   Calvert Formation; Maryland; Miocene; bivalves; Sign in to follow this.

      From introduction: In the following report the species of Foraminifera found in the Miocene of the Coastal Plain region of the eastern United States from Florida to Maryland are described and recorded. Numerous papers have been published on this region, some of which, however, are largely lists. Where the original material on which a paper was based has not been available for the present Cited by: The paleontology gallery opens with a prehistoric time line that fills the entire entry wall. This large mural includes many iconic fossils from Earth's prehistoric past to show where the fossil from Calvert Cliffs fit into the grand scheme of things. Our exhibits also include original fossils of all the known groups of sea shelled animals that.

Excavations made in middle Miocene strata in the Calvert Cliffs of Maryland during construction of a nuclear power plant were used for a spatial distribution study of fossil benthic foraminifera over large bedding surfaces.

The Calvert Cliffs are a relatively continuous series of natural, m-( foot-) high outcrops along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County, Maryland (Fig. 1).The Miocene strata exposed in these cliffs—the canonical Calvert, Choptank, and St. Marys Formations (Shattuck,)—have been the focus of paleontologic and stratigraphic analysis since the late.

People often find fossilized teeth in the Miocene deposits of Maryland. Fossil shark teeth are commonly found at Calvert Cliffs. However, ancient sharks were not the only animals leaving behind teeth 5 million years ago. Dentition from fish, reptiles, and mammals all occur in the Maryland Miocene.

Calvert Cliffs Fossils. by Jeanne D. McLennan The Calvert Cliffs on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County are justly famous as a fossil collecting area.

ABSTRACT Shark teeth are the most common vertebrate fossils found along the western shore of Chesapeake Bay at Calvert Cliffs in Maryland.

The stratigraphic distribution of teeth within the cliffs has not yet been documented. We utilized museum collections of in situ teeth to access their distribution within stratigraphic beds and a large selection of float teeth retrieved from Calvert County Cited by: An artificial exposure in the Miocene Calvert and Choptank Formations in the Calvert Cliffs area on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland presented us with an unusual opportunity to.
