Facies Analysis, Genetic Sequences, and Paleogeography of the Lower Part of the Minturn Formation (Middle Pennsylvanian), Southeastern Eagle Basin, Colorado
From abstract: Siliciclastic and minor carbonate rocks of the lower part of the Middle Pennsylvanian Minturn Formation of north-central Colorado were deposited in alluvial-fan, braidplain, Gilbert-delta, shoreline, and paralic, and offshore-marine environments. These strata can be divided into twelve genetic sequences that are generally bounded by transgressive surfaces of erosion or paralic flooding surfaces, and are characterized by thin and thick transgressive units. This report examines the paleogeography of this area.
Geology of the Central Roan Plateau Area, Northwestern Colorado
From abstract: This report explores the Central Roan Plateau Area of Northwestern Colorado as it includes formations of the Late Cretaceous age, Paleocene age and Eocene age. There are superficial deposits of the Quaternary age and exposed rocks of the Eocene age.
Stratigraphy of the Eocene Part of the Green River Formation in the South-Central Part of the Uinta Basin, Utah
From abstract: Seventeen stratigraphic sections totalling 4,514.3 m were investigated and previous reports studied in order to clarify and illustrate the stratigraphy of most of the Eocene part of the fluvial and lacustrine Green River Formation in the south-central part of the Uinta basin of Utah.
Stratigraphy of the Mississippian System, South-Central Colorado and North-Central New Mexico
From abstract: In the Sawatch, Mosquito and Front Ranges of central Colorado and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of south-central Colorado, Tournaisian beds of the Mississippian Leadville Limestone overlie rocks of Early Mississippian and Late Devonian age. In the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in north-central New Mexico, the oldest beds are the Tournaisian (zone 9) Espiritu Santo Formation. In west-central New Mexico, in the Magdalena, Lemitar, and Ladron Mountains, the Kelly Limestone of Tournaisian and Visean age rests unconformably on Proterozoic metamorphic and igneous rocks. This report examines the stratigraphy of this area.
