      The Dakota Sandstone is described as Early Cretaceous (Aptian and Albian) in the eastern part of Colorado, but as Early to Late Cretaceous (Aptian, Albian and Cenomanian) in the western part of Colorado (Young, ). It records the western shoreline of the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway during this time interval. The integration of isopach maps of depositional packages with the lithofacies allowed the delineation of the spatial and temporal evolution of the slope to basin-floor system. The Cherokee benthic biota was transported to the basin from the shelf or oxygenated upper slope by gravity flows. Biogenic planktonic sediment was sourced from water : Ningjie Hu.

Swamps often form in low-lying areas (for example, the area near sea level behind the shore environment) in which parallel layered, organic-rich black shales and coal form. In arid regions with little vegetation and few rivers, aeolian (wind deposited - sand dunes) environments may dominate. Aeolian sandstones frequently display large scale (1.

The Hatch Mesa succession is located 1–2 km southwest of Hatch Mesa in a gently curving, northwest to southeast trending outcrop belt which is approximately 7 km long ().The Hatch Mesa succession is a 6–20 m thick package, that is subdivided into 3–4 coarsening-upward cycles, consisting of approximately 30–40% sandstone ().Most sandstone beds are very fine- to fine-grained, sharp-based Cited by: The Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Horsethief.

The table below includes specific environments where various types of sediments are deposited and common rocks, structures, and fossils that aid in deducing the depositional environment from examining a sedimentary rock outcrop. Although this is not a complete list, it is a good introduction to depositional environments.

Continental; Transitional. The Mancos Shale represents the offshore and open sea environment of the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway (Weimer, ). During the Cretaceous, marine waters flooded across the North American continent simultaneously from the Arctic and the Tethys regions.

These epicontinental seas joined in Colorado to form the Cretaceous western interior.

The Upper Cretaceous Fox Hills Formation on the southeastern flank of the Powder River basin, Wyoming, was deposited along a regressive, northeast-trending, low-energy, tidally affected, wave-dominated coastline. The Fox Hills Formation consists of rocks deposited successively in. Two small mouth-bars are then deposited in the mouths of these channels and the channel continues to split until become too small to carry sediments ().After this, the system becomes chocked and avulsion or lobe switching occ the good example is Mississippi delta system.

The formation of shallow-marine deltaic basins is typically exhibit a lobe shape with multi-scale coeval terminal. These sandstones are con- sidered as a part of the Nubian sandstones, whose age and environment is problematic.

With the exception of some carbonates, sandstones are commonly the most permeable of all sedimentary rocks—a key element in their economic significance for oil, gas, groundwater Cited by: 1. The Kaiparowits Formation is an unusually thick package of Upper Cretaceous (late Campanian) strata exposed in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument of southern Utah, USA.

George C. Hazenbush. Abstract. Five outcrop sections of the Upper Cretaceous Mancos Shale of Black Mesa, Arizona, have been measured and sampled at close intervals, and the contained microfossils used to subdivide the unit into assemblage zones. The goal of this particular project was to correlate the Coconino Sandstone from Arizona to surrounding western states.

It is well known that many Pennsylvanian to lower Permian sandstones occur in this area; but understanding how they correlate with one another has sometimes proved difficult primarily because of their lack of fossils (see the discussion in Baars and Dunbar et al.
