Revision of stratigraphic nomenclature of Green River Formation of Wyoming
Bulletin of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (May 1959) 43 (5): 1072-1075

Abstract

The beds in the Bridger Basin formerly thought to be the Laney shale member of Schultz is recognized as a new member of the Green River formation (Eocene) and named the Wilkins Peak member; type locality Wilkins Peak, Sweetwater County, Wyoming. The Morrow Creek member of Bradley is recognized to be equivalent to the Laney shale member of the Green River formation, and the name Morrow Creek member is thus abandoned. The Tower sandstone lentil is redefined as a lentil in the Laney shale member of the Green River formation.
