They are particularly useful in subsurface correlation because they are small enough to be numerous in cores and rock chips taken from wells. Sedimentary basin analysis is a geologic method by which the history of a sedimentary basin is revealed, by analyzing the sediment fill itself. Aspects of the sediment, namely its composition, primary structures, and internal architecture, can be synthesized into a history of the basin fill.

    upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Mesaverde Group over km of a north-south-orientated outcrop belt in the northern Bighorn Basin, Wyoming. During the Campanian, the study area lay in the western part of the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway. The study aims to provide a stratigraphic and paleoenvironmental analysis of the Mesaverde. modeling. The outcrop exposes the Upper Cretaceous Frewens sandstone, the deposit of a tide-influenced delta in the FrontierFor-mation of central Wyoming. Our goals were to (1) quantify thesize and spatial distribution of calcite concretions, (2) model the effect of the cement on fluid flow, and (3) provide geostatistical data that.
