Questions of biotic and environmental change during deposition of the Upper Maastrichtian Hell Creek Formation require a robust and replicable system for intra-formational correlation of fossil localities. In this paper, we present a carbon isotope chemostratigraphic curve based on terrestrial organic carbon. Data were taken from a complete measured section spanning the full 93 m of the Hell Creek Formation at our study site. Sedimentary beds were described at the centimeter scale, and samples for carbon isotope analysis were taken at ~10 cm intervals. Each sedimentary bed was analyzed in thin section, and grain-size data were assembled based on petrographic...
