    Figure 3. Cretaceous stratigraphy of western Minnesota and adjoining South Dakota (modified from Setterholm, , fig. 8). The Dakota Formation (Fig. 4) and Graneros Shale were deposited within mostly fluvial, deltaic and nearshore environments, as the waters of the Western Interior Seaway first began to rise and encroach eastward across Minnesota in the late Albian to Cenomanian. Cretaceous strata in Arizona, New Mexico, and southern Colorado were deposited in the southern part of the asymmetric Western Interior basin and consist of east- and northeastward-prograding clastic wedges of shoreface sandstones and coastal-plain deposits separated by thick tongues of west- and southwestward-extending marine shale and, on the eastern shelf, by limestone.

FLINT Stratigraphy Group, Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Liverpool, 4 Brownlow Street, Liverpool L69 3GP, U.K. e-mail: [email protected] The formation overlies the Cedar Mountain Formation, and underlies the Mancos Shale formation, thus occupying the position of sedimentary strata that have historically been called the Dakota term is no longer used for Cretaceous strata that were deposited on the western side of the Cretaceous Seaway.. In most areas, the Naturita Formation is composed of a lower unit of.

Late Cretaceous palaeogeography of western North America was dominated by three tectonic belts that extended virtually the length of the Cordillera: (1) an Andean-type volcanic–plutonic magmatic arc on the west (i.e., Cordilleran Magmatic Arc), (2) a thin-skinned fold-and-thrust belt on the east (initiated in mid-Cretaceous time), and (3) a hinterland (zone of metamorphism, magmatism, and.

Within the Louann Salt Basin, the KPBD is divisible into eastern and western provinces on the basis of both regional and local trends in structure and thickness (Figures 6 and 7).

An easterly promontory exists on the eastern margin of the western province of the Louann Salt Basin, resulting in an irregular structural boundary between the two. The Western Interior Basin extends north–south over about 35° of latitude, from Texas to the Northwest Territories, a distance of more than 3, km.

The bulk of Cretaceous sedimentary rocks in the southern interior basin were deposited during the Cenomanian through middle Campanian interval, when peak eustatic sea level, high rates of thrusting in the Sevier orogenic belt, and rapid subsidence of the associated foreland basin provided extensive sediment accommodation along the western margin.
