The late Middle Jurassic–early Eocene (∼ 120 m.y.) sediment-accumulation history of the Cordilleran foreland basin in northern Utah exhibits a sigmoidal pattern on a rate vs. time plot, with moderate rates of accumulation during late Middle Jurassic, very low net rates during Late Jurassic–earliest Cretaceous, increasingly rapid rates during Early-middle Cretaceous, and low rates during Late Cretaceous–early Eocene time. This pattern is consistent with deposition in a prograding foreland-basin… CONTINUE READING
