Comprehensive safety discussion kicks off the trip on Day 1, followed by . Sedimentology, Mineralogy, Palynology, and Depositional History of Some Uppermost Cretaceous and Lowermost Tertiary Rocks along the Utah Book and Roan Cliffs East of the Green River By Karen J. Franczyk, Janet K. Pitman, and Douglas J. Nichols Abstract The Cited by: Highlights Upper Cretaceous fluvial strata exposed in the Book Cliffs, Utah. Studied here. Dolomite cement bodies up to m in size abundant in distal fluvial strata. Petrographic observations indicate an early diagenetic origin. Mixed meteoric-marine coastal aquifer resulted from base-level shifts. Carbonate cementation potentially has significant impact upon reservoir by: Palynology of the Upper Cretaceous (Turonian) Ferron Sandstone Member, Utah, USA: Identification of marine flooding surfaces and Milankovitch cycles in subtropical, ever-wet, paralic to non-marine.

Subdivision of the Cretaceous system according to the IUGS, as of July The Late Cretaceous (–66 Ma) is the younger of two epochs into which the Cretaceous period is divided in the geologic timescale. Rock strata from this epoch form the Upper Cretaceous series.
