The transgressive phase of the cycle is much thinner than the regressive phase. Foraminiferal data suggest that peak transgression of the Greenhorn Sea occurred during mid-early Turonian to earliest middle Turonian time (Mammites nodosoides to perhaps basal Collignoniceras woollgari Biozone) in this area of the interior seaway.

The Cenomanian/Turonian boundary interval is marked by dynamic changes in the population structure of planktonic foraminifera and in foraminiferal abundance. It is suggested that...
