Abstract : In October 1969 Florida beaches between Cedar Key and Dry Tortugas, on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, and beaches along the Atlantic Ocean as far north as Anastasia Island (St. Augustine), were investigated in a reconnaissance study of composition and indications of cementation associated with their water tables. Water-table rock on Grassy Key (east of Marathon) and beach rock on Loggerhead Key (Dry Tortugas) and on Cape Sable were given closer attention. In all cases cementation was restricted to the zone of water-table fluctuation. (Author)
