Despite the many new species from the area, at family level the fauna is very similar to other Upper Cretaceous European fossil vertebrate assemblages; for example, to the localities in southern France, northern Spain, Austria and Romania (e.g., Buffetaut et al., , Ősi, b).However, the Hungarian site is unique in terms of its high abundance of pycnodont fish and mosasaurid by: The record of impact on Earth: Implications for a major Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary impact, in Geological Implications of Impacts of Large Asteroids and Comets on the Earth, L.

Subdivision of the Cretaceous system according to the IUGS, as of July The Late Cretaceous (–66 Ma) is the younger of two epochs into which the Cretaceous period is divided in the geologic timescale. Rock strata from this epoch form the Upper Cretaceous series.

The Cretaceous Period began with Earth’s land assembled essentially into two continents, Laurasia in the north and Gondwana in the south.

These were almost completely separated by the equatorial Tethys seaway, and the various segments of Laurasia and Gondwana had already started to rift apart. North America had just begun pulling away from Eurasia during the Jurassic, and South.

During the Cretaceous ( Ma; Gradstein et al. Central Europe was part of the European continental plate, which was bordered by the North Atlantic ocean and the Arctic Sea to the NW.

All but the uppermost Cretaceous rocks in the SWWP were deposited in or adjacent to a broad epicontinental seaway that periodically covered much of the Western Interior of the United States (fig. At its maximum extent, the seaway extended a distance of more than 3, mi from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico (Kauffman, ).

The seaway. The Cretaceous Period is one of the major divisions of the geologic timescale, reaching from the end of the Jurassic Period (i.e. from ± million years ago (Ma)) to the beginning of the Paleocene epoch of the Tertiary Period (about ± Ma). As the longest geological Period, the Cretaceous constitutes nearly half of the Mesozoic.

The end of the Cretaceous defines the boundary. Other articles where Epicontinental sea is discussed: Cretaceous Period: Paleogeography: the continents, creating relatively shallow epicontinental seas in North America, South America, Europe, Russia, Africa, and Australia. In addition, all continents shrank somewhat as their margins flooded.

At its maximum, land covered only about 18 percent of Earth’s surface, compared with. 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. Part or all of this report is presented in Portable Document Format (PDF). For best results viewing and printing PDF documents, it is recommended that you download the documents to your computer and open them with Adobe Reader.

The Upper Cretaceous is the last geological epoch in the began million years ago, and ended 66 million years ago. The Cretaceous is traditionally divided into Lower Cretaceous (early), and Upper Cretaceous (late), because of the different rocks reflect the conditions in which they were formed.

From lowest to highest, it is subdivided into the Cenomanian, Turonian Mesozoic era (– mya):.

The Late Cretaceous (–66 Ma) is the younger of two epochs into which the Cretaceous geological period is divided in the geologic time scale. Rock strata from this epoch form the Upper Cretaceous Cretaceous is named after the white limestone known as chalk which occurs widely in northern France and is seen in the white cliffs of south-eastern England, and which dates from this.

This basin was flooded by shallow Cretaceous epicontinental seas from the north and south beginning in Barremian-Aptian time. These discrete arms of the seaway joined in Late Alb-ian, and after a brief latest Albian separation across the Transcontinental Arch, the basin remained flooded for 38 Ma until late Middle Maastrichtian time.

An epicontinental sea bisected West Africa periodically from the Late Cretaceous to the early Eocene, in dramatic contrast to the current Sahara Desert that dominates the same region today. Known as the Trans-Saharan Seaway, this warm and shallow ocean was a manifestation of globally elevated sea level associated with the rapid break-up of the supercontinent Gondwana in the late Cited by: 1.

The book was reprinted in with some modifications. Introduction to the Cretaceous Geology of Texas and Other States. The goal of this site is to form a database for Cretaceous rocks of North America.

The site provides a discussion of Cretaceous stratigraphy with maps and cross sections that illustrate Cretaceous formations of Texas and an extensive bibliography for additional information.The item Stratigraphic cross section of Cretaceous rocks along the north flank of the Unita Basin, northeastern Utah, to Rangely, northwestern Colorado, by C.M.

Wilson ; U.S. Department of the Interior, U.S. Geological Survey represents a specific, individual, material embodiment of a distinct intellectual or artistic creation found in Indiana State Library.The Upper Cretaceous holds approx­ imately 5% of the total oil recoverable in Western Canada.

Con­ sidering this potential and the shallow nature of most of these pools, it would appear that exploration dollars directed towards them could yield a good rate of return.
