... Abstract The Upper Elk Point Subgroup is comprised of a succession of shallow-water carbonates, (mainly basin-filling) evaporites and some siliciclastics up to over 400 m in thickness. This succession represents the initial open-marine inundation of the Alberta "Basin". Upper Elk Point strata...

... portion of this basin. During pre-Middle Devonian and Middle Devonian time, a cyclical sequence of redbeds (clastics and evapo- rites) of the Lower Elk Point subgroup were deposited in a shallow epicontinental sea. The incipient development of the Black Creek basin occurred at this time. Subsequently...
