Abstract

The objective of this study is to establish a stratigraphic, sedimentologic, and geochronologic framework of the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation within Dinosaur National Monument, and to tie this framework to the rest of the Colorado Plateau and other important fossil-bearing localities. The study is designed to complement ongoing paleontological inventories of the Morrison Formation within the Monument. During the first field season, emphasis was placed on beginning detailed stratigraphic and sedimentologic work and the collection of samples for various types of analyses.
