Cretaceous sediments are thin or missing from topographically higher parts of the buried pre-Cretaceous surface, but are as much as feet thick in valleys and depressions. Available data suggest that the topography of the pre-Cretaceous surface was related primarily to differences in resistance of the older rocks to weathering and erosion.

FOX, Jr. A SHORTER CONTRIBUTION TO GENERAL GEOLOGY GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROFESSIONAL PAPER E Significant Foraminifera from a section north of the Black Hills and a se ction in the eastern Bighorn Basin. North of the Laramide province (north of ~48°N), the EET exceeds km within 50 km of the Sevier thrust front and is described as strong lithosphere (Hyndman et al., ; Tesauro et al., ). “Thin‐skinned” Sevier deformation in this part of the Cordillera involved internally deformed, closely spaced thrust sheets composed primarily. The Cretaceous (/ k r ɪ ˈ t eɪ. ʃ ə s /, krih-TAY-shəs) is a geological period that lasted from about to 66 million years ago (mya). It is the third and final period of the Mesozoic Era, as well as the name is derived from the Latin creta, 'chalk'. It is usually abbreviated K, for its German translation Kreide.. The Cretaceous was a period with a relatively warm climate.

The basal Cretaceous deposits that fringe the inner margin of the Coastal Plain from eastern Alabama to central North Carolina, where they are overlapped by 11iocene sands, have been commonly classified as of Lower Cretaceous age and correlated roughlywith the Patuxent formati,on of the Potomac group of Maryland and Virginia.

A geomagnetic reversal is a change in a planet's magnetic field such that the positions of magnetic north and magnetic south are interchanged (not to be confused with geographic north and geographic south).The Earth's field has alternated between periods of normal polarity, in which the predominant direction of the field was the same as the present direction, and reverse polarity, in which it. ).

Merriam () has suggested possible correlations of surface and subsurface units, although much additional work, especially on surface outcrops, is necessary before correlations can be verified.
