Title: Stratigraphic Correlation and Nomenclature in Plains of Southern Alberta

Author(s): J. S. Irwin (2)


Correlation of the strata underlying the plains of southern Alberta with the better known formations of Montana is attempted. This is offered as justification for the nomenclature adopted in the symposium of which this paper is a part. More widespread approximate correlations including the greater part of the Rocky Mountain cordillera and geosyncline from New Mexico and Utah to Alberta are attempted, and a simplified nomenclature in accordance therewith is suggested for the plains of northern Montana and southern Alberta.
