Cretaceous Shelf Sandstones and Shelf Depositional

About The Product

Published by means of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Field journey Guidebooks Series.

The moment subject matter specializes in higher Cretaceous coastal and shallow marine rocks as displayed through exposures within the surprising publication Cliffs of Utah. The shelf and shoreface sequences obvious in those rocks signify a number of the classical exposures of such facies within the usa. as a result of excessive charges of sediment yield from the within reach actively uplifting Cretaceous Sevier orogenic belt, the Mesaverde crew within the booklet Cliffs is ruled by way of regressive sequences, punctuated by means of locally huge unconformities.

Across the Wire: Life and Hard Times on the Mexican Border

Luis Alberto Urrea's around the cord deals a compelling and unheard of examine what existence is like for these refugees residing at the Mexican part of the border—a international that's just some twenty miles from San Diego, yet that few have visible. Urrea supplies us a compassionate and candid account of his paintings as a member and "official translator" of a group of aid employees that supplied relief to the various refugees hidden simply in the back of the flashy vacationer spots of Tijuana.

Sample text

Sea level cycles in the upper Turonian (three falls in one million years) is consistent with the complex stratigraphy of this part of the section in the San Juan Basin and the suggestive evidence for as many as three unconformities in that interval. The chrono-stratigraphic model is included here as a basis for discussion and hopefully as a stimulus to further detailed biostratigraphic work in the basin. STOP 14. SHIP ROCK WASH. 1 Access (Fig. 4-5) Stops 14, 15, and 16 are on the Navajo reservation.
