Abstract

Tectonism in SW Wyoming and adjoining areas, and fluctuations of sea level in the central USA during the mid-Cretaceous are represented by the regional stratigraphy of the Frontier Formation. The Frontier consists mainly of clastic rocks that were deposited in marine and nonmarine environments during latest Albian, Cenomanian, Turonian, and Coniacian time. -from Author
