    Navajo Sandstone frequently occurs as spectacular cliffs, cuestas, domes, and bluffs rising from the desert can be distinguished from adjacent Jurassic sandstones by its white to light pink color, meter-scale cross-bedding, and distinctive rounded weathering.. The wide range of colors exhibited by the Navajo Sandstone reflect a long history of alteration by groundwater and other. Download Citation | Aeolian sediments in lower to middle (?)

    The name of a formation consists of the word “Formation”, or the name of the dominant rock type in the formation, with a capital letter, preceded by a geographical name. For example, the Frontier Formation, where Frontier is a town in southwestern Wyoming near where the formation was first described in The outcrop of this formation. A total of oriented specimens, taken at stratigraphic intervals of 3 to 20 cm, have been collected from the Red Peak Member of the Chugwater Formation at three localities approximately 25 km.

Stratigraphy of the Chugwater formation in the area adjacent to Dubois, Wyoming by Robert H Storch Download PDF EPUB FB2

It usually unconformably underlies Sundance formation, but in places is overlain by intervening Jelm formation. In Wind River Mountains the characteristic Chugwater redbeds rest on Dinwoody formation. In other parts of Wyoming. the redbeds occupy a much larger stratigraphic interval and rest on Tensleep sandstone.

The Chugwater Formation comprises about feet of red shale, siltstone, and sandstone likely deposited in ephemeral lakes and small streams during the Early Triassic.

It is essentially without fossils. The Chugwater was named for rocks exposed along Chugwater Creek near Iron Mountain, Wyoming, in The base of the variegated claystone is from 98 to feet below the base of the Alcova Limestone Member of the Chugwater Formation along a generally east-west cross section, possibly reflecting a thickening of the interval above the base of the variegated claystone toward the depositional axis of the former : M.
