Geologic History of Florida chronicles the creation of the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, the western Atlantic Ocean, and other major events in Florida s geologic past. It looks back million years, to a time when the ancient igneous and metamorphic basement rocks were covered by a large sedimentary carbonate platform nearly 3 miles thick, known as the Florida Platform/5(14).

The definitive reference for that landscape, The Geology of Florida illustrates the importance of basic geological research and its application to issues facing a society that places increasing demands upon its physical world/5(10).

61). Florida’s geologic past. Thus, I developed a full-length course on the geologic history of Florida, contributed a chapter to The Geology of Florida*, and have published a number of scientific papers on the details of selected portions of Florida’s geologic history.

But, this book is not meant to be a textbook for my course. Overall, Florida’s geological history has been driven by changing sea levels, which have influenced the production of carbonate bedrock, siliciclastic input/transport, hydrology, and surface topography.

During the last interglacial period, the majority of south Florida was a shallow carbonate environment with some siliciclastic input. Florida Frontiers “The Geologic History of Florida” At different points in geologic history, Florida has been totally submerged, but it has also been twice as wide as it is now.

Florida has a diverse wealth of geological resources. People have enjoyed the sands of Florida’s beaches for more t years. Prehistoric people in Florida used chert to make weapons and tools. Later indigenous people used clay to create bowls and storage containers. Coquina rock provided a practical building material for Spanish colonists.

In fact, Florida was a very different-looking place not so long ago, and over the past million years it has had quite a unique and surprising geological history. African Origins To start with, the deep bedrock that underlies Florida was originally a part of Africa.
