This paper discusses a manuscript by Otvos (1995). The original paper attempts to draw parallels between Mississippi- Alabama Neogene units and those of north Florida, despite significant differences in depositional setting and style. The original paper additionally presents some arguments regarding sea-level history and terrace origins which we consider to be tenuous. We present here various lines of evidence which were not considered in the paper and which led to quite different interpretations of the sedimentologic history of north Florida.
