Abstract

This day in the field is designed to allow you to observe the various facies which occur in one of the many varieties of shelf sandstones. The Shannon Sandstone outcrops of Campanian age (Fig. 1) in the Salt Creek area contain two stacked shelf sand ridges.

The four or five stops to be included on the trip have a somewhat similar coarsening-up sequence at each location. The locations of the stops are shown in Figure 2. Several of the stops have extensive Central Ridge Facies while the others contain, predominently High- and Low-Energy Ridge- Margin Facies as their highest energy facies.
