The Upper Cretaceous Fox Hills Formation on the southeastern flank of the Powder River basin, Wyoming, was deposited along a regressive, northeast-trending, low-energy, tidally affected, wave-dominated coastline. The Fox Hills Formation consists of rocks deposited successively in . Two small mouth-bars are then deposited in the mouths of these channels and the channel continues to split until become too small to carry sediments ().After this, the system becomes chocked and avulsion or lobe switching occ the good example is Mississippi delta system.. The formation of shallow-marine deltaic basins is typically exhibit a lobe shape with multi-scale coeval terminal.
These sandstones are con- sidered as a part of the Nubian sandstones, whose age and environment is problematic. Blake and Ionides () gave a Early Cretaceous age for all the sandstones in southern Jordan, while Bender () was able to sub- divide these rocks Cited by: Sandy depositional systems also play a key role in helping us assign a basin to its proper type and in relating it to a plate tectonic or other genetic framework. With the exception of some carbonates, sandstones are commonly the most permeable of all sedimentary rocks—a key element in their economic significance for oil, gas, groundwater Cited by: 1.
The Kaiparowits Formation is an unusually thick package of Upper Cretaceous (late Campanian) strata exposed in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument of southern Utah, USA. The formation was deposited within the rapidly subsiding Cordilleran foreland basin as part of a thick clastic wedge derived from sources in the Sevier orogenic belt, thrust sheets in southeastern Nevada and southern Cited by: The precipitation of cements in quartzarenites and subarkoses deposited in a marine environment tends to follow a predictable pattern beginning with clay authigenesis associated with quartz and feldspar overgrowths, followed by carbonate precipitation. Clay minerals form first because they precipitate more easily than quartz and feldspar overgrowths, which require more ordered crystal : Web page.

The Hatch Mesa succession is located 1–2 km southwest of Hatch Mesa in a gently curving, northwest to southeast trending outcrop belt which is approximately 7 km long ().The Hatch Mesa succession is a 6–20 m thick package, that is subdivided into 3–4 coarsening-upward cycles, consisting of approximately 30–40% sandstone ().Most sandstone beds are very fine- to fine-grained, sharp-based Cited by: The Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Horsethief.
Formation in the Northern Disturbed Belt and Sweetgrass Arch areas of Montana (Fig. I) consists of sandstones, siltstones, and mudstones which were deposited along the western margin of the Western Interior Cretaceous seaway (Fig.

The table below includes specific environments where various types of sediments are deposited and common rocks, structures, and fossils that aid in deducing the depositional environment from examining a sedimentary rock outcrop.
Although this is not a complete list, it is a good introduction to depositional environments. Continental; Transitional. The Mancos Shale represents the offshore and open sea environment of the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway (Weimer, ).
During the Cretaceous, marine waters flooded across the North American continent simultaneously from the Arctic and the Tethys regions. These epicontinental seas joined in Colorado to form the Cretaceous western interior.
