Abstract Outcrop studies in the marine to nonmarine transition of the Moosebar and Gates formations, in the Cadomin and Grande Cache areas (western, deformed Deep Basin), together with studies of the subsurface Spirit River Formation (undeformed Deep Basin), have identified several transgressive-regressive cycles in an overall prograding shoreline succession. Six marine to brackish water cycles are recognized in outcrop in the Grande Cache area, the lower three associated with possible wave… CONTINUE READING
