...-meters adequately explain flexural subsidence in the northern Big Horn basin. The present basin configuration also was compared with a theoretical profile based on geologic constraints. Subsidence models for the present basin profile suggest that Paleocene thrusting of the Beartooth block contributes...

... of the more important of these findings are summarized in this paper. The Beartooth-Bighorn area, shown on the accompanying key map ( Fig. 1 ), embraces the Big Horn Basin area of northwestern Wyoming and south-central Montana, its encircling uplifts, and some contiguous territories. It includes...

The writers believe that many more significant accumulations remain to be discovered in areas that are not associated directly with the crestal positions of Laramide structural closures. The Big Horn basin is in northwestern Wyoming ( Fig. 1 ) and continues...

...Leonard E. Thomas ABSTRACT The Big Horn basin of northwestern Wyoming is primarily a Laramide structural basin, but the area has been a part of larger sedimentary basins through most of geologic history. The basin is on the eastern shelf area of the Cordilleran geosyncline just east of the hinge...

On the north, the basin is separated from the Crazy Mountain syncline of south-central Montana by the Nye-Bowler left-lateral wrench-fault zone. The Big Horn basin is the most prolific producing basin in Wyoming and in the central Rocky...

..., explorationists desire to map the groundwater potentiometric surface in this area to better understand hydrocarbon migration. In this paper, we use the Big Horn basin as a field laboratory for the study of basin hydrodynamics. The Big Horn basin is a particularly good laboratory because many of the oil fields...

Any structures present would be highly prospective because few anticlines in the Big Horn...

... in sedimentary rocks? Areally, only a small Precambrian exposure in the Grand Canyon has been observed. In the summers of 1963 and 1964, a comprehensive reconnaissance geologic study was made of the main Precambrian outcrop area in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. Observations of joints were made at each...

The initial 2- to 4-km-thick Heart Mountain block slide moved on a slope of about 2°, detaching for half its length on a nondescript bedding plane in the Ordovician Big Horn Dolomite (BHD). Given our current understanding of fundamental mechanics, such a great mass of rock should not have begun...
