Magnetostratigraphic evaluation of a well-exposed stratigraphic section in northeastern Montana has been undertaken to expand upon and better understand the timing of the Hell Creek and Fort Union Formations and the biological processes recorded within them. Characteristic remanent magnetizations show clear magnetostratigraphic patterning of chrons C28n, C28r, C29n, C29r, C30n, and possibly C30r. Differentially corrected global positioning system coordinates, including elevation, were recorded at each sample site, allowing the magnetostratigraphic framework to be precisely relocated in the field and traced laterally across the landscape. In this way, important chronologic boundaries such as the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary can be projected into or...
