'False Bakken' interval- sediment patterns and depositional architecture at the facies boundary between siliciclastic mudstones and carbonates, Lodgepole Formation, Mississippian in the Williston Basin, ND
The lateral facies transition on deep shelves between carbonates and siliciclastic mudstones is largely enigmatic. Based on detailed facies descriptions and interpretations, this study explores which processes have shaped the sedimentary rocks on both sides of this lithological divide, and adds to our understanding of processes operating on deep shelves in general. Both siliciclastic and carbonate rocks of the 'False Bakken' and 'Scallion' intervals of the lower Lodgepole Formation in the Williston Basin, ND, can be grouped into twelve facies: these facies are graded argillaceous mudstone (F1), ...
