About The Product
Published through the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Field journey Guidebooks Series.
The San Juan River has carved majestic canyons via a thick series of marine sedimentary rocks of Pennsylvanian (Upper Carboniferous) age in southeastern Utah. The superimposed canyons have been lower around the large Monument Upwarp in past due Tertiary to fresh occasions, exposing a usual go component of the cyclic strata, together with algal bioherms, in unexcelled beauty. private and oldest rocks uncovered are evaporites and carbonates of the ambiguity Formation (Middle Pennsylvanian) alongside the southwestern shelf of the anomaly evaporite basin. the anomaly is a pull-apart basin that sagged into life through the Ancestral Rockies orogeny, the yankee counterpart of the Hercynian orogeny of Eurasia. top canyon partitions are composed of carbonate and clastic cycles of the overdue Pennsylvanian Honaker path Formation.
