Eustatic and tectonic control of the Lower and Middle Pennsylvanian rocks of the Central Ap- palachian Basin. In West Virginia, the Appalachian Basin produces natural gas, oil, and coal.

The commercial coal beds occur only in strata deposited during the Pennsylvanian Period of geologic time, while oil and gas deposits are found in strata from throughout the Paleozoic Era.

The Pottsville Formation is conspicuous at many sites along the Allegheny Front, the eastern escarpment of the Allegheny or Appalachian PlateauPrimary: sandstone, conglomerate. The Mississippian- Pennsylvanian boundary in the Maritimes Basin is a major regional unconformity, as it is in the Central Appalachian Basin in.

The Glenshaw Formation is a mapped sedimentary bedrock unit in Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and Ohio, of Pennsylvanian age.

• Early Pennsylvanian palynomorph assemblages are usually dominated by Lycospora, with Densosporites being subdominant in many.
