Li, Weiguo, Bhattacharya, Janok P, and Campbell, Chris, Temporal Evolution of Fluvial Style in a Compound Incised-Valley Fill, Ferron "Notom Delta", Henry Mountains Region, Utah (U.S.A.): .

Summary

Nonmarine sequence stratigraphic models hypothesize systematic changes in fluvial style within individual sequences and across sequence boundaries, based largely on mudstone-sandstone ratios. The main purpose of the paper is to evaluate the validity of these models by documenting facies relationships and detailed bedding architecture of bar and channel deposits as well as mudstone-sandstone ratio within a compound incised-valley fill at the top of the Cretaceous Ferron Sandstone Member of the Mancos Shale Formation in the Henry Mountains region, Utah, U.S.A. Field photomosaics, walking out of beds, and 42 measured sections document the stratal and facies organization in the incised-valley fill. Two erosional surfaces with erosional [...]
