Strata preserved within the Sevier foreland basin of North America contain a suite of lithologic variations influenced by hinterland tectonic processes. Using U-Pb detrital zircon geochronology, we compared provenance signals of Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous strata from a west-to-east, foredeep-to-forebulge-to-backbulge depozone transect across the state of Wyoming and evaluated major tectonic mechanisms operating during the early evolution of the Sevier orogeny. Our data included new and compiled U-Pb detrital zircon ages (n = 6013) from 50 localities that were integrated into a revised chronostratigraphic framework and subsidence history for the basin. At the onset of the Sevier...
