      Tectonic Evolution of the Anadarko Basin Region, Oklahoma By WILLIAM J. PERRY, JR. A multidisciplinary approach to research studies of sedimentary rocks and their constituents and the evolution of sedimentary basins, both ancient and modern U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY BULLETIN EVOLUTION OF SEDIMENTARY BASINS ANADARKO BASINCited by: At a few times during the late Cretaceous the Western Interior Seaway went through periods of anoxia, where the bottom water was devoid of oxygen and the water column was stratified. At the end of the Cretaceous, a continuing uplift in a mountain-building episode called the Laramide orogeny hoisted the sandbanks (sandstone).

        Strata in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, for example, record flooding events that reached deep into the interior of the continent during the Devonian to Carboniferous. The epeirogenic motion which caused this deposition was contemporaneous with compressive tectonic events along the western plate margin of by: Download this PDF in a full window.

Evolution of the Western Interior Basin by W. Caldwell, Erle G. Kauffman,Geological Association of Canada edition, in EnglishPages: This model suggests a two-phase evolution of the basin.

Times of active plate spreading, ridge-building, and thus eustatic rise are generally coeval with active plutonism, volcanism, thrusting, and rapid subsidence in the Western Interior Basin of North.

the black shale submember of the study core suggest that black shale sediments accumulated slowly in a sediment-starved basin. A high abundance of sulfide-scavenged elements, including Mo, Zn, V, Ni and Cr, identifies the Author: Sikhar Banerjee. The Western Interior Basin extends north–south over about 35° of latitude, from Texas to the Northwest Territories, a distance of more than 3, km.

The basin developed as a result of crustal loading during the western migration of the North American Plate and the subduction of by: The evolution of the Western Interior Basin is closely linked to lithosphere deformation caused by static and dynamic loads, and eustatic sea level changes occurred during the Upper Cretaceous.

These sandstones are now superbly exposed along a km-long, strike-parallel, continuous outcrop in the cliffs of the Wasatch Plateau of central Utah. Keith N Sircombe and Peter J.J Kamp, The South Westland Basin: seismic stratigraphy, basin geometry and evolution of a foreland basin within the Southern Alps collision zone, New Zealand, Tectonophysics, /S(98), (), ().Cited by: The Western Interior foreland basin and the proto-Cordillera developed in tandem as differential expres­ sions of the same set of global tectonic events that shaped the western part of North.

The sedimentary fill of the Western Interior Basin is dominantly Cretaceous in age, ranging from Aptian through Maastrichtian. The basin fill was asymmetric, with.

An industrial multichannel seismic reflection data set is presented on the Galicia Interior Basin (G.I.B.), a sedimentary basin that has been poorly studied until now. Seismic stratigraphic units defined in other areas of the western Iberian continental margin as well as some deeper reflections can also be identified within this basin, although they show some particular by: Sedimentary Evolution of the Western Interior.

The Western Interior foreland basin is one of the largest and most intensively studied basins in the world. It has become convenient to regard the Middle to Late Jurassic Nevadan orogeny as the event that initiated the foreland basin, because sediments of this age range in the basin contain the first indication of a westerly derived orogenic source (although Cited by: 6.

The origin and evolution of sedimentary basins is an obvious focus of the International Lithosphere Program because it is fundamentally a problem in the dynamics and evolution of the lithosphere, and moreover, it provides special opportunities for strengthening the interactions between basic research and the applications of geology, geophysics.

Breakthroughs in new techniques are described in Section 1, including detrital zircon geochronology, cosmogenic nuclide dating.Abstract. During the Mesozoic, the western, or Cordilleran, margin of North America was dominated by convergent plate tectonics.

Sedimentary basins within and peripheral to this margin developed in a variety of tectonic settings (Dickinson, a) and contain basin-fill sequences that reflect the complex interplay of basin margin (and interior) tectonism, erosion, basin subsidence Author: William L.
