SEPM short course, no. by Jack Wendte, Frank A. Stoakes, Clarence V. Campbell. The Late Devonian and Early Mississippian Bakken and Exshaw formations are a continuum of regionally correlated, organic-rich (up to 35% total organic . The book commences with a summary of the Phanerozoic geological history of the United States and Canada, illustrated with a suite of new paleogeographic maps, and tying in each of the subsequent regional chapters by the inclusion of numerous cross-references. S.A. Dufrane Within the carbonate-dominated Devonian succession of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, sandstones of the Famennian Sassenach Formation represent a sedimentological and isotopic.

The Sedimentary Basin area of Western Canada, which lies between the Precambrian Shield and the Cordilleran mountain area, covers approximately , square miles. Sediments ranging in age from Cambrian to Tertiary are present and, of these, horizons in the Upper and Lower Cretaceous, Jurassic, Mississippian, and Devonian have yielded. The latest carbonates to precipitate in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin tend to have the most radiogenic Sr compositions. High 87 Sr/ 86 Sr ratios indicate that some radiogenic Sr was introduced to these carbonates from adjacent and underlying clastic strata and/or the Precambrian basement. The saline formation waters that precipitated Cited by: In: Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, G.D. Mossop and I.

The Late Devonian (Frasnian) Nisku Formation in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin is a homoclinal ramp composed of four stacked carbonate cycles with reefs in both shallow-ramp and downslope settings. Nisku Formation deposits in the Cynthia Basin, a westward facing sub-basin, contain two distinctly different reef types. One.
