Facies Architecture, and Controls on Channel-belt Geometry: Cretaceous-Ferron Notom Delta, Utah, U.S.A.
Examination of fluvial deposits of the Late Cretaceous (Turonian) Ferron Sandstone Member, within the Mancos Shale Formation, in Central Utah (along Sweetwater Wash) was done to interpret fluvial style, characterize avulsion, ...
3D Allostratigraphic Mapping and Facies Heterogeneity of a Compound Tributary Incised Valley System, Turonian Ferron Sandstone, Notom Delta, South-Central Utah
Incised valley systems are important for sequence stratigraphic and exploration purposes. The tributary component of these systems may inherit complicated, self-similar, plan-view morphologies from the drainage networks ...
Thin-bedded Facies Analysis of a Ferron Storm-dominated Delta Front and Prodelta: Cretaceous Ferron Sandstone, Utah
This study examines thin-bedded facies within shelf and prodelta deposits of the Cretaceous Ferron Notom Delta in central Utah. Thin beds may be the result of storms (tempestites), ignitive turbidity currents, or hyperpycnal ...
