  The concept of stratigraphic base level, or the ratio between accommodation and sediment supply (A/S ratio), has been used to analyse the Rusty and Canyon Creek Members of the Campanian Ericson Sandstone in the Rock Springs Uplift, SW Wyoming, USA. Eastern Arkansas was originally part of the northward-extending bay of the Gulf of Mexico already mentioned, created by subsidence of the underlying rocks. However, as this bay was filled and emerged from the sea, it was dramatically altered by rivers, primarily the Mississippi, Ohio, and Arkansas.

The Colorado Piedmont is an area along the base of the foothills of the Front Range in north central Colorado located just under 5, feet elevation. The area is characterized by a broad, hilly valley stretching north and northeast of Denver in the South Platte River valley and southward from Colorado Springs in the Arkansas River valley.

Stratigraphy of the Colorado Group, Upper Cretaceous, in Northern New Mexico by CHARLES H. RANKIN1 INTRODUCTION In previous reports on the Cretaceous rocks of New Mexico, writers have followed the nomenclature established by Cross,2 and have described all the rocks between the Dakota sandstone and the Mesaverde coal measures as Mancos shale. Valley opens up into hay fields and splendid panoramas to north of the eastern fringes of the Uinta Lake system with its contained oil shales. Exit DeBeque. Mile Cross Colorado River. Mile Garfield/ Mesa County Line. Mile Note red outcrops to north .

It is important in the study of sedimentary and layered vocanic rocks. The western comer of the continental exmouth plateau is bounded by early cretaceous (valanginian- hauterivian) abyssal plains. The Lower Cretaceous marine strata in east-central Sonora are as much as 2, m thick and consist of six mappable lithostratigraphic units.

This sequence is important not only for delineating the paleogeography of western Mexico, but also for correlating the sections in eastern Mexico with those in western Mexico and Baja California.

Less than 1 million years ago, three glaciers formed a ’-high ice dam near what is now Granite, Colorado. It blocked the upper Arkansas River and created a large lake at least ’ deep that extended 14 miles north. Cretaceous marine sedimentary rocks are exposed both at the surface and beneath alluvial and eolian cover in the Arkansas River Valley of Colorado, and are generally recognized as a source of water-quality degradation (Seiler et al., ).
