This one-day field trip will take a quantitative view of the accumulation of sediment in the Denver Basin since the middle Cretaceous. We will systematically review the facies, thickness, organic content, rates of accumulation and paleoenvironments of the rocks that comprise the last 100 million years of deposition in the region.
