STRATIGRAPHY AND COMPOSITION OF THE SHARON SPRINGS MEMBER OF THE PIERRE SHALE IN WESTERN KANSAS By JAMES R. GILL, WILLIAM A. COBBAN, and LEONARD G.

The Pierre Shale / p ɪər ʃ eɪ l / is a geologic formation or series in the Upper Cretaceous which occurs east of the Rocky Mountains in the Great Plains, from Pembina Valley in Canada to New Mexico. The Pierre Shale was described by Meek and Hayden in in the Proceedings of the Academy of Sciences (Philadelphia).

They described it as a dark-gray shale, fossiliferous, with veins and Country: United States, Canada. The lower Pierre Shale represents a time of significant changes in the Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway, resulting from complex interactions of tectonism and eustatic sea level changes.

The recognition and redefinition of the units of the lower Pierre Shale has facilitated understanding of the dynamics of the basin.

The Sharon Springs Member was first named in western Kansas from exposures of organic-rich black shale (Elias, ). As originally described, the member included three units: an organic-rich shale unit, a buttress-weathering shale unit, and a phosphate nodule unit (Gill et al., ) (Fig.

A new juvenile specimen of Pteranodon from the Smoky Hill Chalk Member of the Niobrara Formation of western Kansas had an estimated wingspan in life of m, ~45% smaller than the smallest previously known specimens, but does not differ in morphology from larger specimens.

Its presence indicates that juveniles were capable of flying long distances, so it falsifies the interpretation Cited by: 3. Gill, W.

The age of the Pierre Shale is estimated to range from the upper Cenomanian to early Maastrichtian based on ammonite stratigraphy (e.g., Cobban ), and this formation is distributed in a wide area including east-central Montana, south-central Colorado, western Kansas, western South Dakota, eastern Wyoming (e.g., Metz ) and southern Utah Cited by: 4.

The Utica Shale was determined to be a poor unconventional reservoir in regards to well Farley H, lacking conducive TOC. The Niobrara shale formation is situated in northeastern Colorado and parts of adjacent Wyoming, Nebraska, and Kansas.

James S. Aber Bedrock Stratigraphy The surface bedrock of northeastern Kansas and northwestern Missouri consists of limestone and shale arranged in nearly horizontal beds or layers that can be followed continuously over long distances.

Shale in eastern Kansas has been used for making bricks. When heated it color changes to "brick-red". Shale is also used mixed with limestone for making Portland cement. Shale sometimes is confused with the metamorphic rock slate because of the color and ability to break along bedding planes.

There are no naturally occuring slate deposits in. The Union Springs member sits upon a SB/TSE. Lash and Engelder (Lash and Engelder, ) interpret the Union Springs Member as a 3rd order depositional sequence composed of a lower, upward-increasing API gamma-ray TST and an upper, upward-decreasing API gamma-ray RST, with a mfs constituting the highest gamma-ray shale.
