Title: Distribution of Reefs of Woodbend Group in Alberta, Canada

Author(s): John A. Downing (2), D. Y. Cooke (2)


The Woodbend group of Upper Devonian age consists of a series of marine shale and carbonates and locally reef bodies, and occurs in the subsurface throughout the Alberta basin. Correlative rock units are also exposed in the Rocky Mountains west of the basin. Four distinct areas of known reef distribution in Alberta are apparent; these are: (1) the Peace River area, (2) the Central Alberta area, (3) the Southern, Southeastern Alberta, and the Rocky Mountain area, and (4) Northeastern Alberta. Within these areas there are definite reef trends. The most pronounced of these is the Morinville-Rimbey trend of the Central Alberta area.
