A stratigraphic examination of the Morrison Formation in northeastern New Mexico indicates that its sediments were deposited in either a semiarid or arid environment when the area was located below 30°N lat. and was under the influence of the Northeast Trades. The dry environment and the prevailing northeasterly flow adversely affected the chance of commercial quantities of uranium from being incorporated into Morrison sediments.
Dinosaurs that lived in the area were adapted to living in a dry and hot habitat.
