This study applies high-resolution sequence stratigraphy, biostratigraphy, and magnetic susceptibility (MS) stratigraphy to better constrain correlation of upper Middle and Upper Devonian strata and geologic events in western Alberta, Canada. We also explore the potential of MS stratigraphy as a long-range correlation tool and paleoclimatic or oxygen isotope proxy. High-resolution MS data from slope and basin deposits near the isolated Miette and Ancient Wall platforms provide insight into patterns of carbonate- platform development and infilling of the Devonian Alberta basin. Our MS data, combined with conodont and brachiopod biostrati-graphic data and sequence stratigraphy, provides additional control on the relative...
