Title: Evidence of a Sandy Suspended-Load Dominated River from the Mississippian Cypress Formation, Illinois, USA

Abstract

Describes how diagnostic sedimentary facies and textures have been identfied by integrating new core and outcrop data, which enabled a new interpretation for the thick sandstones within the Cypress Formation as meandering or anastomosing fluvial deposits. The results provide new insight into the preservation of mesoforms and macroforms under the influence of suspended-load dominated transport as well as implications for the dynamics of Carboniferous continental scale river systems in the Illinois Basin.
