The item Upper Cretaceous (Maestrichtian) larger invertebrates from the Haustator bilira assemblage zone in the Atlantic Coastal Plain with further data for the East Gulf, Norman F. Sohl and Carl F. Koch represents a specific, individual, material embodiment of a distinct intellectual or artistic creation found in Indiana State Library.   The fossil record of the reproductive traits of early birds is limited. Here, Bailleul and colleagues describe the Cretaceous enantiornithine bird Avimaia schweitzerae, which preserves an . This study presents high-resolution correlations of the Upper Cretaceous stratigraphy between the Book Cliffs and the western Henry Mountains Syncline in Utah. The objective of this study is to understand changes in patterns of regional sediment dispersal during the Late Cretaceous on the western margin of the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway. For example, in the Late Cretaceous and Eocene epochs there is abundant geological evidence for warm, mostly ice-free poles, but tropical sea surface temperatures are generally estimated to be.

Travel through Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous eras, hunting for fossils and then learning about each amazing prehistoric creature, before testing your knowledge with a fun dinosaur quiz. Grab your paleontologist’s tool kit and get stuck in with facts, stats, and colorful illustrations to amaze any young dinosaur enthusiast. ABSTRACT: The Upper Cretaceous Sego Sandstone Member of the Mesaverde Group has been extensively studied in the Book Cliffs area of Utah and Colorado, and has been the focus of stratigraphic reconstruction aimed at developing an understanding of the evolution of the Western Cretaceous . Upper Cretaceous OFR52 Results of Groundwater Flow Simulations In the East Dover Area, Delaware In , staff of the Water Supply Section of the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) informed the DGS of their concerns about overpumping of the unconfined Columbia aquifer in an area east of Dover (Figure 1). In this book, readers discover the incredible dinosaurs and other creatures that lived during this time, including the massive carnivore, Spinosaurus. They also explore the lush landscapes of the Upper Cretaceous including the Horseshoe Canyon of North America and African shorelines.

The Upper Cretaceous is the last geological epoch in the began million years ago, and ended 66 million years ago. The Cretaceous is traditionally divided into Lower Cretaceous (early), and Upper Cretaceous (late), because of the different rocks reflect the conditions in which they were formed.

From lowest to highest, it is subdivided into the Cenomanian, Turonian Mesozoic era (– mya):. Upper Cretaceous on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Upper Cretaceous. book CretaceousFormat: Paperback. The Upper Cretaceous succession (formerly the Colville Group, which was abandoned by Mull et al., ) includes the upper part of the Hue Shale and the Seabee, Tuluvak, lower part of Canning, Schrader Bluff, and Prince Creek Formations (Fig.

2).Upper Cretaceous strata are absent on the highstanding Arctic Platform owing to either nondeposition or erosion, and are absent due to erosion. 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. The following is a summary of these and the subsequent events that transpired during the Late Cretaceous in the Gulf of Mexico basin region. Upper Cretaceous rocks form a virtually continuous blanket over the Gulf of Mexico basin.

Overall, the inner edge of the northern outcrop parallels the deeply buried Paleozoic Ouachita orogenic belt. PDF | On Jan 1,ore s published British Upper Cretaceous Stratigraphy | Find, read and cite all the research you need on ResearchGate.

This field guide describes a geological field excursion focusing on world-class exposures of the Upper Cretaceous succession in the Henry Mountains Syncline of southern Utah.

The area is easily accessible via paved and some unpaved roads, and is a little over three hours’ drive by road from Salt Lake City. TY - BOOK. T1 - British Upper Cretaceous stratigraphy.

A description with phylogenetic analyses is provided for Imperobator antarcticus, gen. et sp. nov., an early Maastrichtian, basal paravian (Theropoda; Maniraptora) from the Naze Peninsula, James Ross Island, Antarctica.

Inresearchers uncovered the remains of a theropod later referred to Dromaeosauridae. The Cretaceous (/ k r ɪ ˈ t eɪ. ʃ ə s /, krih-TAY-shəs) is a geological period that lasted from about to 66 million years ago (mya).

It is the third and final period of the Mesozoic Era, as well as the name is derived from the Latin creta, 'chalk'. It is usually abbreviated K, for its German translation Kreide. The Cretaceous was a period with a relatively warm climate. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Maryland Geological Survey.

Upper Cretaceous strata exposed in the Book Cliffs of east–central Utah are widely used as an archetype for the sequence stratigraphy of marginal-marine and shallow-marine deposits.

Their stratal architectures are classically interpreted in terms of accommodation controls that were external to the sediment routing system (allogenic), and that forced the formation of flooding surfaces.

A new fossil genus and species of Keroplatidae (Diptera, Bibionomorpha, Sciaroidea), Adamacrocera adami gen. et sp. nov., from the Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber is described and illustrated. Based on morphological evidence, it is placed in a new subfamily Adamacrocerinae subfam.

Upper Cretaceous rocks in the Book Cliffs of Utah are well-known examples of complexly intertonguing nonmarine, nearshore marine, and offshore marine facies, as is recounted elsewhere in this volume.

Relative to many Cretaceous units in other regions, these rocks also exhibit for about ft of Upper Cretaceous strata that are exposed in the Book Cliffs and traceable into the adjacent subsurface areas, between Grand Junction, Colorado, and Green River, Utah, a distance of about mi (fig.

The project was designed initially to better understand the origin and paleo. The Late Cretaceous (–66 Ma) is the younger of two epochs into which the Cretaceous geological period is divided in the geologic time scale.

Rock strata from this epoch form the Upper Cretaceous Cretaceous is named after the white limestone known as chalk which occurs widely in northern France and is seen in the white cliffs of south-eastern England, and which dates from this. Title. Upper Cretaceous / Maryland Geological Survey.

Maryland Geological Survey. Bassler, Ray S. (Ray Smith), Berry, Edward Wilber, Cretaceous rocks make up nearly 29% of the total area of Phanerozoic deposits on the Earth's landmasses.

Because of the great extent of their outcrop area and presence in drill cores, Cretaceous rocks are the most intensively studied part of the Phanerozoic rock column. At one time Cretaceous seas covered 50% of the present North American. Major Upper Cretaceous sandstone tongues in the Book Cliffs are underlain by erosional surfaces like that beneath the Blackhawk Formation, which extend for many tens of kilometres into the Mancos shale.

These surfaces are the boundaries of Upper Cretaceous depositional sequences. The sequences are large‐scale genetic stratigraphic units. The Cretaceous Period was the third, last and longest interval of the Mesozoic Era, lasted approximately to 66 Ma (79 million years) and witnessed important changes to life on Earth, from the.
