Abstract
The stratigraphy of the Biscayne aquifer at the Levee 31N study area is characterized by vertical lithofacies successions (VLSs) that occur individually or bundled within high-frequency cycles (HFCs). The VLSs are the smallest set of genetically related lithofacies and represent the fundamental building blocks of the Biscayne aquifer. The HFCs are defined on the occurrence of regional-scale bounding upper and lower exposure surfaces and their likely relation to fifth-order, 10- to 100-kiloyear cyclic sea-level events. The VLSs are related to a single rise and fall in relative sea level in the less than 10- to 100-kiloyear duration range (fifth order or higher), suggesting an association with sub-Milankovitch frequencies observed in patterns of cyclic deposition within the Fort Thompson Formation.....
