Sample text

A ravinement sur­ face lies directly above the Torrivio Sandstone, sep­ arating this fluvial sandstone from the overlying Tocito Sandstone and the Mulatto Tongue of the Mancos Shale. The Gallup Sandstone at this outcrop is characterized by an upward-coarsening trend, from 125 lm at the base to about 250 lm at the top (Figs. 4-6 and 4-7), moderately well-sorted quartzose sandstone and sparse to common burrows of the species Ophiomorpha nodosa, Thalassinoides sp. and related common shallow marine traces.

5 Cyclicity in the Point Lookout Sand­ stone Evident in both the field trip stops and the drive south from Cortez has been the repetitive vertical stacking of Point Lookout shoreface deposits at different spatial scales. Because our work in this area is prelim­ inary we have stopped short of assigning a numerical hierarchy to the cycles; however, we are currently testing the hypothesis that individual high-frequency shoreface cycles are "bundled" into larger subsets within the Point Lookout Sandstone.

Dr. C. W. Hoskins and Mr. W. A. Chisholm were involved in early stages of the field work. Technical reviews by Tim Lawton, Rod Tillman, and Robyn Wright are greatly appreciated. T119 CHAPTER 3. COASTAL AND SHALLOW MARINE CYCLICITY Robyn Wright 1, Danny Katzman*, Melissa J. Montz^, Robert S. Zech^ CYCLE RANKING Repetitive lithologic, biologic, and chemical patterns in sedimentary rocks have long challenged geological observers to decipher causal mechanisms. From the days of Gilbert [1895, 1900] geologists have sought to explain order in the stratigraphic record where bedding patterns suggested non-random sequential pro­ cesses.
