      Geological of the western interior during the Mesozoic Era Abstract The Mesozoic Era “the middle life” is the second major Era that lies between the Paleozoic Era and the Cenozoic ist believe that this Era took place from to 65 million years ago. The earth during this time was different from what we know today. The shape of the earth and life . Geology, Stratigraphic -- Mesozoic. See also what's at your library, or elsewhere. Broader term: Geology, Stratigraphic; Narrower terms: Geology, Stratigraphic.   Another book I would recommend is one I'm currently reading Rough-Hewn Land: A Geologic Journey from California to the Rocky Mountains. It's focus is relating the geology of the west in an easily digestible manner that can be quite funny at .

At the beginning of Laramide orogeny, a blanket of undisturbed Cretaceous and minor older Mesozoic sedimentary rocks 1, to 3, m thick covered the Southern Rocky Mountain province, and the last of a series of Cretaceous seas was starting to withdraw northeastward across the region. Willis Thomas Lee has written: 'Stratigraphy of the coal fields of northern central New Mexico' -- subject(s): Coal, Geology, Geology, Stratigraphic, Stratigraphic Geology 'Early mesozoic.

The Rocky Mountains include at least separate ranges, which are generally divided into four broad groupings: the Canadian Rockies and Northern Rockies of Montana and northeastern Idaho; the Middle Rockies of Wyoming, Utah, and southeastern Idaho; the Southern Rockies, mainly in Colorado and New Mexico; and the Colorado Plateau in the Four Corners region of.

Deformation of the Earth's crust, minor during the Triassic, intensified in the Jurassic and reached a peak in the Cretaceous, during which time our present Alpine-Himalayan chain, Rocky Mountains, and Andes began forming.

Carbonates are the major sedimentary rock of the Mesozoic in the Tethyan belt; outside this region, detrital rocks predominate.

The Colorado Plateau, also known as the Colorado Plateau Province, is a physiographic and desert region of the Intermontane Plateaus, roughly centered on the Four Corners region of the southwestern United province covers an area ofkm 2 (, mi 2) within western Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, southern and eastern Utah, northern Arizona.

The compressional forces of subduction faulted the crustal rocks of western North America and uplifted the Rocky Mountains in two major pulses. The Sevier Orogeny (–72 million years ago) formed an extensive belt of and folds, also known as the “Overthrust Belt,” extending from the Sierra Nevada in California to the edge of the Colorado.

The Rocky Mountains, exposed today as tall jagged peaks, were nearly buried beneath their own debris during most of the Oligocene and Miocene. During this period when the Rockies were mostly buried, isolated highlands continued to shed sediments eastward into Nebraska, eastern Wyoming and the Dakotas (Badlands of S.
