    In the Uinta Basin the Mesaverde Group of Late Cretaceous age is gradational with and often intertongues with the underlying Mancos Shale, The Mesaverde Group"" consists of three principal facies based on their environment of deposition. The three facies are: a littoral or nearshore sandstone facies, a lagoonal or coal- bearing facies, and an inland or non-coal bearing facies. The plants of Mesa Verde are part of the Sierra Madrean flora that occupies the Great Basin, Colorado Plateau, and the Sierra Madre of northern Mexico (Benson, , p. ). Vegetal material identified from the Wetherill Mesa Project's excavations and earlier collections indicate a prehistoric flora similar to that of the present day (Welsh, MS.).

    Mesa Verde National Park is an area of federal exclusive jurisdiction. Because of this all law enforcement, emergency medical service, and wildland/structural fire duties are conducted by federal National Park Service Law Enforcement Rangers.

Geohydrologic evaluation of the upper part of the Mesaverde Group, northwestern Colorado. Denver, Colo.: Dept. of the Interior, U.S. Geological Survey: Books and Open-File Reports Section [distributor], [i.e. ] (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book.

History. The Mesaverde Formation was first described by in during the Hayden described the formation in the northern San Juan Basin as consisting of three units, which were a "Lower Escarpment" consisting of 40 m of ledge- and cliff-forming massive sandstone; a "Middle Coal Group" consisting of up to m of thick slope-forming sandstone, shale, marl, and lignite Overlies: Cody Shale, Mancos Shale.

The thickness of the Mesaverde Group in previous studies ranges from - m thick. The nomenclature of the Mesaverde Group varies from region to region, although internally the stratigraphy is laterally persistent between regions.

As summarized above, the Mesaverde Group is divided into four component units (Fig. Stratigraphy of the Upper Cretaceous Mancos Shale (Upper Part) and Mesaverde Group in the Southern Part of the 3 Uinta and Piceance Basins, Utah and Colorado Click on image below to bring up high-resolution image of plate 2.

Reservoirs deposited in a delta plain environment as part of the Mesaverde Formation have been penetrated by the three wells of the U.S. Department of Energy's Multiwell Experiment (MWX) in the east-central Piceance Creek basin. northwestern Colorado.

These reservoirs are gas-bearing, low-permeability, sandy channel and splay by: 3. Geologic unit mapped in Wyoming: Mesaverde Formation (north Wyoming) - Light-colored massive to thin-bedded sandstone, gray sandy shale, and coal beds.

In Jackson Hole locally contains gold-bearing quartzite conglomerate. North of North Fork Powder River east of the Bighorn Mountains, consists solely of the Parkman Sandstone Member. Mesaverde Group (South Wyoming) - Includes Almond. This paper establishes a stratigraphic framework for the Mesaverde Group, nearly 5, ft thick, in the central and eastern greater Green River basin based on data from measured outcrop sections and drill holes.

Stratigraphic correlations are supported by ammonite zonation. No new stratigraphic names are introduced, and no nomenclature problems are discussed. Abstract. Large amounts of natural gas occur in low-permeability reservoir rocks of Cretaceous age in the Piceance basin of Northwest Colorado.

Three closely spaced wells drilled through the Upper Cretaceous Mesaverde group as part of the US Department of Energy's Multiwell Experiment (MWX) were extensively cored and logged in order to identify the factors controlling the occurrence and.

The Piceance Basin is a structurally bounded intra-cratonic basin located in northwestern Colorado ().It was initially part of the Late Cretaceous Rocky Mountain Foreland Basin, later becoming confined by the White River Uplift (to the northeast) and the Uncompahgre Uplift (to the southwest) during the Eocene Laramide Orogeny (Johnson and Flores, ).Cited by: Book Cliffs north of I between Grand Junction, Colorado and Green River, Utah.

The Mesaverde Group is well-exposed in the Book Cliffs of east-central Utah and western Colorado.

It constitutes a classic foreland basin clastic wedge, which developed in response to uplift and erosion along the Sevier Orogen during the Late Cretaceous.

The middle Mesaverde Group of the Douglas Creek Arch, northwestern Colorado, is represented by a complex succession of fluvial to marine strata that serve as outcrop analogs to laterally equivalent natural gas reservoirs in the Piceance and Uinta basins.The stratigraphic nomenclature for the Mesaverde Group in the eastern and southeastern Piceance Basin (Carroll et al.
