Cretaceous Shelf Sandstones and Shelf Depositional

About The Product

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

The moment subject makes a speciality of top Cretaceous coastal and shallow marine rocks as displayed by way of exposures within the fantastic e-book Cliffs of Utah. The shelf and shoreface sequences obvious in those rocks symbolize many of the classical exposures of such facies within the usa. because of excessive charges of sediment yield from the within sight actively uplifting Cretaceous Sevier orogenic belt, the Mesaverde team within the publication Cliffs is ruled by means of regressive sequences, punctuated by way of domestically huge unconformities.

2 Gallup Sandstone At Shiprock Wash we are close to the seaward pinch-out of the Gallup Sandstone on the Four Corners platform. The Torrivio Sandstone (fluvial) lies directly above the Gallup shoreface with no intermediate nonmarine Gallup facies. Moreover, there is only a thin and discontinuous Dilco Coal Member. A ravinement sur­ face lies directly above the Torrivio Sandstone, sep­ arating this fluvial sandstone from the overlying Tocito Sandstone and the Mulatto Tongue of the Mancos Shale. The Gallup Sandstone at this outcrop is characterized by an upward-coarsening trend, from 125 lm at the base to about 250 lm at the top (Figs.

Transition ^thOrdejMHJacj^ regression and transgression are an integral component of each cycle. Considering that basin submergence accompanied deposition of Cretaceous strata through the San Juan basin, we suggest that increased sediment yield was the major factor responsible for progradation at the 5th-order scale (aloftg non-deltaic strandlines).

Shoreline regression occurred in a stepwise fashion, resulting in a series of thick benches and thin steps composed of individual transgressive-regressive shoreface couplets, or cycles [Hollenshead and Pritchard, 1961; Wright, 1986].
