Soon after the area was settled in the s, paleontologists began arriving to investigate the mysteries of ancient life captured in the rocks.

      The story behind this incredible area deals with the formation of what is known as the Colorado Plateau. This area covers , square miles in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona.

    The Geology/Paleontology faculty are exploring processes recorded in the rock record, including sedimentary, structural, igneous, marine, planetary and glacial geology; paleontology and geobiology. Research is process-oriented and interdisciplinary, with a strong field component. Active areas of research include faulting and crustal deformation.

Geology of the White River Formation: The White River Formation contains numerous late Eocene and Oligocene vertebrate, invertebrate and plant fossils in the Douglas, Wyoming area. It is composed of terrestrial sedimentary rocks ( meters thick), including mudstones, siltstones, sandstones, minor conglomerates, and volcanic paleoenvironment was an aggradational meandering river system (ancestoral North Platte River.

The Colorado Plateau is one of the Earth's northwest Colorado book strikingly beautiful geological provinces -- and one of the most enigmatic. Millions of years of the planet's evolution are recorded in layer after layer of distinctive geological strata, which are remarkably free from the folding and other distortions that scramble the record elsewhere/5(34).

The Colorado Plateau is a land of scenic beauty characterized by sparsely vegetated plateaus, mesas, deep canyons, and barren badlands. It encompasses an area of approximatelysquare miles in the four corners region of White River Plateau, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.

It includes the area drained by the Colorado River and it's tributaries theFile Size: 81KB. This paper presents some of the results of a geologic field investigation, carried on during the past several years, of much of the White River uplift in northwestern Colorado.

Several geologists of the U. Geological Survey assisted in the field work. The Survey's paleontologists identified many fossil collections and made many of the collections in the field.

Making up the Clearwater Sub-area's million acres are Idaho, Clearwater, Lewis, and Nez Perce. These mountains had been formed by major crustal movements over an approximately million year period, but were shaped and modified by stream and river erosion.

This was the setting for the next, and very dramatic, step in the evolution of northwest Montana—glaciation. Pleistocene Epoch –. The White Mountains and Springerville Volcanic Field of eastcentral Arizona contain a variety of spectacular geologic features (Figure A).

Because of the relatively sparse vegetation over much of this area, most of these features are easy to recognize and photograph.

Similar features occur throughout much of the western United States. Our field research takes us all over the Rocky Mountain Region to the Arctic and tropical America, and we utilize the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History’s vast paleontology collection that includes overcatalogued specimens from more than 45 states and 80 countries.

Geologic History of Utah and the Colorado Plateau. I’ve put a lot of thought and study into the geologic history of Utah and the Colorado Plateau over the last decade. I hope in this article I can add some insight into the subject, and make the geologic history of.

Intro to Geologic History of the Colorado Plateau The geologic history of the Colorado Plateau can be subdivided into six broad periods ranging from Precambrian to Recent. Period 1 includes the whole of the Precambrian. Rocks of Period 1 are exposed only in the cores of some of the uplifts which flank the Colorado Plateau, [ ].

The present configuration of the Bear River with respect to Bear Lake Valley may not have been established until the late Pliocene. The absence of Uinta Range–derived quartzites in fluvial gravel on the crest of the Bear Lake Plateau east of Bear Lake suggests that the present headwaters were not part of the drainage basin in the late Tertiary.
