Coastal Plain is the youngest of Georgia's geologic provinces, making up almost half the state's surface province begins at the fall line, which runs from Augusta through Macon to Columbus, and extends eastward all the way to the modern Georgia coast and southward to the Florida state line.

The Coastal Plain is composed of undeformed sedimentary rock layers whose ages range. Geology of the coastal plain of Georgia (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: C Wythe Cooke; Geological Survey (U.S.).

Georgia is rich in such geological resources as marble, granite, and kaolin; production of these resources accounts for a large proportion of Georgia's addition, the geological beauties of rock, river, and mountain provide the attractions that annually draw thousands of tourists to Georgia's state parks and other.

The Geology of Georgia consists of four distinct geologic regions, beginning in the northwest corner of the state and moving through the state to the southeast: the Valley and Ridge region, also known as the Appalachian Plateau; the Blue Ridge; the Piedmont and the Coastal Fall Line is the boundary between the Piedmont and the Coastal Plain.

A major geologic resource in the Coastal Plain is groundwater. The less porous rocks of the other regions of Georgia provide less groundwater, but the aquifers of the Coastal Plain provide groundwater for domestic consumption, for industry, and for agricultural irrigation.

Geologic hazards in the Coastal Plain include sinkholes and coastal erosion. In Roadside Geology of Georgia, The book guides the reader through the sedimentary sequences of the Barrier Islands and the Georgia Coastal Plain, Valley and Ridge, and Appalachian Plateau before ending the state's tour in the metamorphic and igneous rocks of the Piedmont and Blue Ridge/5(43).

The Atlantic Coastal Plain Province is a low-relief physiographic plain, underlain by a gently-dipping, seaward-thickening wedge of unconsolidated Mesozoic and Cenozoic sediments. The province extends from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to the northwestern extension of the Peninsular arch in Georgia and is separated into emergent and submergent parts.

Each page of the story map journal is designed to serve as a virtual workbook for students and others interested in the geology of Georgia. As further reference, page numbers throughout the story map journal reference the book Roadside Geology of Georgia.
