Middle Mississippian Visean (1) Book: Reservoir Quality of Clastic and Carbonate Rocks: Analysis, Modelling and Prediction. A comparison between sand- and mud-dominated shelf to shoreline sequences deposited into the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway: examples from the Cardium Formation, Kakwa Region, west-central Alberta. The Mississippian System in Kentucky is represented by mostly marine sedimentary rocks which originally extended across the entire State.

The Mississippian is a subperiod in the geologic timescale or a subsystem of the geologic record. It is the earliest/lowermost of two subperiods of the Carboniferous period lasting from roughly ± to ± million years ago. As with most other geochronologic units, the rock beds that define the Mississippian are well identified.
