Abstract

The Menefee Formation (Mesaverde Group, Late Cretaceous) consists largely of deltaic plain and paralic deposits. The deposits were formed along the west coast of the Cretaceous Seaway. Based on theoretical models for the stacking of tidal delta deposits, an indication is given of the relation between relative rise of sea level and behaviour of the flood tidal deltas and connected tidal inlets.
