    Because of the alternation of past environments, the Cretaceous section (– million years old) has layers of conglomerate (called Sycamore), shale, limestone (Cow Creek), and sand, followed by resistant limestone (called Glen Rose). The overlook is located near the base of the Glen Rose hills. At the beginning of the Tertiary Period (Fig. 2), South Central Texas was a muddy sea floor receiving copious amounts of sediment as the continent interior rose higher. During the Eocene, South Central Texas was on the northwestern margin of the Gulf of Mexico, fluctuating in time from coastal-plain to shallow-marine environments (Fig. 9).File Size: 2MB.

    Paleontology and geology. The Cretaceous is well represented in Texas, shown on this map extending across much of the central state. During this time, seas rose and fell many times, causing the paleo-shoreline to migrate back and forth. This ancient shoreline is visible throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area and follows Interstate 35 south to.   The lengthy Cretaceous Period constitutes a major portion of the interval between ancient life-forms and those that dominate Earth today. Dinosaurs were the dominant group of land animals, especially “duck-billed” dinosaurs (hadrosaurs), such as Shantungosaurus, and horned forms, such as marine reptiles such as ichthyosaurs, mosasaurs, and plesiosaurs were common in .

CENTRAL TEXAS LOWER CRETACEOUS STRATIGRAPHY DELOS R. TUCKER1 ABSTRACT The Lower Trinity Group consists of the terrigenous Hosston formation (below) and the carbonate Sligo formation; updip, the Hosston thins by basal onlap and climbs upward by intercalation with the Sligo.

This Group is probably represented by a barrier reef section downdip. The mid-Cretaceous is a period known as one of the cores of the formation of LIPs such as the Ontong Java, Manihiki, and Hikurangi plateaus (ca.

– Ma), the Kerguelen Plateau (ca. – Ma), the Caribbean Plateau (ca. 95–85 Ma), and Cited by: Subsurface lower Cretaceous stratigraphy, Central Texas. Lower Cretaceous strata in central Texas are divisible into genetically related rock bodies. The Lower Trinity Group contains a lower terrigenous near shore deposit (Hosston Formation) which interfingers with an overlying shallow water, offshore limestone-dolomite sequence (Sligo limestone); this Group may contain a barrier reef section downdip.

Prominent hills are held up by sandstone bodies within the stratigraphically complex Dakota Formation.The Cretaceous Books Cliffs of Utah are best known as the Mecca of sequence stratigraphers, but besides excellent exposures that allow tracing of sandstone bodies and sequence boundaries the succession also contains abundant shales and mudstones.

Because of the excellent stratigraphic control, we studied shales in the Kenilworth Member of the Blackhawk Formation to examine proximal to distal changes of shale facies.
