The Lower Cretaceous of the central and southern Alberta plains and the central foothills area contains a rich assemblage of ostracodes and charophytes. This zone is useful in correlating strati- grapbic sections from the foothills to the plains area and can also be used as a mappable horizon in the oil fields. Twenty-three of the most commonly occurring species belonging to ten genera are figured and described.

Western Canada Sedimentary Basin: A Symposium; Sponsored by the Alberta Society of Petroleum Geologists, and the Saskatchewan Society of Petroleum Geologists
An enormous asymmetric structural and sedimentary basin with the deepest part along the eastern margin of the highly disturbed foothills belt of the Rocky Mountains, the Western Canada sedimentary basin is detailed in this volume. It consists of 30 papers dealing with the petroleum geology of the basin, with most of the papers deal with the area south of the Northwest Territories. The geological history of the area is covered, as well as topics such as: regional stratigraphic analysis, paleontological correlations, structural interpretations, folded faults, and the tar sands of Athabaska River.
