The site provides a discussion of Cretaceous stratigraphy with maps and cross sections that illustrate Cretaceous formations of Texas and an extensive bibliography for additional information.   Cretaceous time, coal, copper, and bad news for dinosaurs The Cretaceous Period ( to 65 million years ago) was hot and steamy. There was no ice at the poles. Global temperature is estimated to have been about 18 F warmer than today. Atmospheric carbon dioxide began a million-year decline from about 2, ppm to the.

      Cretaceous Period - Cretaceous Period - Major subdivisions of the Cretaceous System: The rocks that were either deposited or formed during the Cretaceous Period make up the Cretaceous System. The Cretaceous System is divided into two rock series, Lower and Upper, which correspond to units of time known as the Early Cretaceous Epoch ( million to million years ago) and the Late. The Upper Cretaceous is the last geological epoch in the began million years ago, and ended 66 million years ago.. The Cretaceous is traditionally divided into Lower Cretaceous (early), and Upper Cretaceous (late), because of the different rocks reflect the conditions in which they were formed. From lowest to highest, it is subdivided into the Cenomanian, Turonian Mesozoic era (– mya): .

Cretaceous geology of Lower California by Frank Marion Anderson Download PDF EPUB FB2

The Cretaceous rocks of California are remarkable for their lithologic sameness nearly everywhere, and for the occurrence in several localities of sections more t feet thick. Like the Franciscan, moreover, the Cretaceous is remarkable for its great quantity of feldspathic sandstone, and in many areas for its great, though less extreme, scarcity of organisms.

Based on its fossil content the Formation ranges in geologic age from the early part of the Lower Cretaceous (Hauterivian) at more than million years ago, to the middle part of the Upper Cretaceous (Turonian) at less than 90 million years ago (Gradstein, Ogg, and Smith ), a supposed total time span of at least 40 million years (fig.

The Cretaceous Period is the most recent period of the Mesozoic Era, spanning 77 million years, from million to 65 million years ago. InOmalius d'Halloy termed the chalky rocks (Latin: "creta") found on the English and French sides of the English Channel "Cretaceous.".

The Cretaceous is divided into Early and Late Cretaceous epochs, or Lower and Upper Cretaceous series. In older literature the Cretaceous is sometimes divided into three series: Neocomian (lower/early), Gallic (middle) and Senonian (upper/late).

The name Cretaceous is derived from creta, Latin for “ chalk,” and was first proposed by J.B.J. Omalius d’Halloy in D’Halloy had been commissioned to make a geologic map of France, and part of his task was to decide upon the geologic units to be represented by of his units, the Terrain Crétacé, included chalks and underlying sands.
