This course introduces the major groups of modern and fossil invertebrates and the fundamental concepts of stratigraphy. Students will develop and employ a variety of field and laboratory skills while investigating elements of earth history and changes in the tectonic setting of eastern North America through geologic time. Pliocene to Recent lacustrine and playa deposits in the southwestern United States preserve a sedimentary record of climate change and tectonic activity. The middle Pliocene record is particularly important, because it represents the beginning of the glacial-interglacial climate that characterizes the Quaternary. However, continental sedimentary records of this time period arc scarce.

  A revised depositional model of predominantly swampy rather than lacustrine conditions is proposed for the upper dark shales and mudstones (Corradigbee Formation) of the Hatchery Creek Group. The whole sequence is interpreted as a humid alluvial fan deposit, conformable on underlying limestones, with a total thickness of about by: 3. Introduction to Sedimentology by S.M. Sengupta.

Paleobotany, also spelled as palaeobotany, is the branch of botany dealing with the recovery and identification of plant remains from geological contexts, and their use for the biological reconstruction of past environments (paleogeography), and the evolutionary history of plants, with a bearing upon the evolution of life in general.

Stratigraphy and paleobotany of the Golden Valley Formation (Early Tertiary) of western North Dakota. Geological Society of America Memoir 1 – Hickey, L. Sequence stratigraphy is a recent methodology for stratigraphic interpretation, pioneered by Peter Vail in the mid 70's (Vail et al ), that explains the complex geometries that sediments acquire as they fill accommodation in response to changes in rates of sedimentation, tectonic and eustatic movement.

This discipline is built on a solid foundation of five geological paradigms that include. The Mesaverde Group in the Book Cliffs area, Utah is a molasse of Upper Cretaceous (Campanian to Maastrichtian) age that prograded from the Sevier Orogenic belt in central Utah eastward across the Western Interior Desert Member of the Blackhawk Formation and the overlying Lower Castlegate Sandstone are two of several fluvial–littoral units in the molasse, all of which intertongue Cited by: Stratigraphy, paleontology, and depositional systems of the Eocene Gub Mountain Formation, Lincoln County, New Mexico-a preliminary report by Spencer G.

Detailed outcrop analysis of the Lower Jurassic Kayenta Formation provides the basis for the formulation of a new sequence stratigraphic model for arid to semi-arid continental deposits and the generation of a comprehensive set of sedimentologic criteria for the recognition of ephemeral stream deposits.
