    Abstract. The Upper Proterozoic Mineral Fork Formation of northern Utah is a well-preserved ancient example of facies that accumulated in a glacial-marine environment and beneath an ice sheet that at times was grounded below sea level.   'To bring together, correlate, and preserve'--a history of the Kansas Geological Survey, , by Rex C. Buchanan, foreword by Grace Muilenburg. Published in 's Bulletin Geophysics in Kansas, edited by Don W. Steeples. Published in Bulletin

This report is a contribution of the U. Geological Survey's. Geologic sections showing the subsurface delineation of approximately Stratigraphic units composing the Mesozoic and Cenozoic Eras illustrate the interrelation of these units across most of the Gulf Coastal Plain of Texas.

() introduced a new stratigraphic nomenclature for the outcrops in the Oman Mountains, in which the Middle Permian, Upper Permian and the Triassic succession is represented by the Saiq and Mahil formations of the Akhdar Group.

They chose the type locality of the Saiq Formation on the Saiq Plateau, close to Saiq Village (Figures 1 and 2). The geologic time scale (GTS) is a system of chronological dating that classifies geological strata (stratigraphy) in is used by geologists, paleontologists, and other Earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships of events in geologic history.

The time scale was developed through the study and observation of layers of rock and relationships as well as the times when. A progressive carbonate environment from supratidal to near-shore, retricted to intertidal and restricted shallow marine environment existed during deposition of the Jahrum Formation.

The main facies characteristics of the Jahrum Formation in the study area are: (1) a laminated, unfossiliferous dolomite and pelleted dolomitic mudstone with solution collapse breccias; (2) a pelleted laminated.
