The Cretaceous Dakota Formation in the areas of Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa contains a rich and well-preserved microflora of fossil palynomorphs. A comprehensive listing of these taxa is presented in this publication as part of a continuing effort to develop a refined biostratigraphic scheme for mid-Cretaceous terrestrial deposits in North America. A series of well-preserved specimens from a variety of taxa has firmly placed the origin and early diversification of Neoceratopsia in the Early Cretaceous of Asia, –.However, the timing and phylogenetic affinities of the clade's first dispersal into North America have remained unclear, due to a dearth of fossilized material that, until now, has consisted of relatively uninformative.

The Upper Cretaceous stratigraphy of the Western Interior Basin is characterized by the deposits of several major marine transgressions.

The paleogeographic maps illustrating this period (Figu 17, 19–21) show conditions during maximum transgression. During regressive episodes parts of the basin were uplifted and exposed. The Cretaceous–Neogene Laramide orogeny produced the Rocky Mountains of western North America, which are major physiographic features dictating modern climatic regimes and biogeographic patterns in this region.

Uplift began when the subducting Farallon tectonic plate shifted from a deeper to a more shallow position. Since retiring from NAU Geology inmost of my efforts have been towards creating paleogeographic maps. Most of these maps are within five series 1: global, 2: North America, 3: Europe, 4: Southwest North America, and 5: Western Interior Seaway (Jurassic and Cretaceous).

These maps are continuously updated and new maps are added to each. The Santonian Emery Sandstone Member of the Mancos Shale is a continental to shallow marine succession that prograded into the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway of western North America.

The Cretaceous stratigraphy and main palaeogeographic features of the North-Eastern Peri-Tethys are briefly summarised on the base of new data. The study is mainly focused on the time-slices that. nupper cretaceous stratigraphy and biostratigraphyew Mexico geological society uidebook, 63rd Field conference, Warm prings region,p.

He named the crocodiliform trace fossil Hatcherichnus sanjuanensis in and identified the first known occurrence.

The current work presents a high-resolution stratigraphic chart for terrestrial Late Cretaceous units of North America, combining published chronostratigraphic, lithostratigraphic, and biostratigraphic data. 40Ar / 39Ar radiometric dates are newly recalibrated to both current standard and decay constant pairings.

The Western Interior Seaway formed about million years ago when the mountains that now define western North America lifted up as a result of tectonic forces.

Those same forces flexed the land east of the mountain range downward. Waters from the Arctic Sea and the Tethys Sea (now the Gulf of Mexico) flowed in to fill the lowlands.

I interpret southeastern nodosaurs coming from western North America across the Western Interior Seaway according to reasoning as follows.
