Abstract

Evidence of a post-Cretaceous uplift of the Sioux Quartzite ridge in southeastern South Dakota consists of deformation of the Dakota Formation, Graneros Shale, Greenhorn Limestone, Carlile Shale, and Niobrara Formation of Cretaceous age. The Greenhorn is warped upward about 400 ft on the Sioux Quartzite with a formation dip ranging from 30-50 ft/mi. Elsewhere in eastern South Dakota the dip of the Greenhorn ranges from 3-8 ft/mi.
