Abstract

The Lincoln Limestone Member of the Greenhorn Limestone is characterized by calcareous shale and calcarenite beds deposited during the transgressive phase of the Greenhorn Cyclothem. At Rock Canyon anticline the Lincoln Member is conformably underlain by the Graneros Shale and overlain by the Hartland Shale Member of the Greenhorn Limestone. The Lincoln Limestone Member represents one complete 4th order marine cycle within the Greenhorn Cyclothem beginning with lithofacies and biofacies characteristic of a stillstand event, progressing to deposits characteristic of an overall transgressive pulse. -from Authors
