Abstract

Information on salt domes in Gulf of Mexico Coastal Plain, south-central United States and the adjacent Continental Shelf were compiled from major published sources, 1973-84. The location of 624 salt domes is shown on a map at a scale of 1:1 ,500,000. A color-coding system was used to show that the occurrence, size, shape, and location of these domes varies among sources. Two tables of additional data accompany the map and include other available information such as: identifying sources, depth to salt and caprock, diameter, volume, name, and uppermost zone of surrounding sediment that is penetrated, as well as the number of matches between sources. The locations of salt domes that penetrate specific zones within the gulf coast regional aquifer system are shown on maps. (USGS)
