Oceanic anoxic events: Anoxic events, or episodes during earth’s history when the oceans become completely depleted of oxygen, have occurred many times throughout geologic time and have resulted in mass extinctions. These events can be used as stratigraphic indicators as a "black shale" may be may be linked to lapses in key oceanic current circulation and or . Paleontology, or palaeontology, is the study of prehistoric life forms on Earth through the examination of plant and animal fossils. This includes the study of body fossils, tracks (ichnites), burrows, cast-off parts, fossilised faeces (coprolites), palynomorphs and chemical residues.

Therefore, the objectives of this study were to determine the geologic stage of the four members of the Pierre Shale that crop out within the study area (Gregory, Crow Creek, DeGrey, and Verendrye), determine the chronostratigraphic age of several marine reptile fossils, relate the study area to a sequence stratigraphic framework, and gather data to reconstruct the paleoenvironment.

The Thermopolis Shale belongs to both the Colorado Group and Dakota Formation. Both historically and currently, the stratigraphic units in these groups, and in the Thermopolis Shale, have been unclear, and the nomenclature used by geologists is not standardized.

The Mowry Shale (Albian -Cenomanian) is an extensive mudrock dominated unit historically believed to represent a single, long -term deep water sequence within the Western Cordilleran Foreland Basin of North America. While the Mowry Shale has receiv ed study for almost a century, detailed stratigraphic context is still : Jordan M Bremer.

Rocks of the Thermopolis consist of: 1.) basal gray to black carbonaceous shale about 60 ft thick of marine origin, 2.) the Muddy Sandstone Member about 14 ft thick, 3.) a brown-gray, thin-bedded, fine grained, silty sandstone interbedded with thin-bedded siltstone and shale 50 ft thick that has a 2 ft thick lignite bed at top, and 4.) a 60 ft thick interval of sandy siltstone and shale interbedded with "typical".

Many areas of both California and the Great Basin contain diatom-bearing sediments which range in age from Late Cretaceous to Recent. The diatom assemblages in these rocks contain both short-ranging species that are useful for stratigraphic correlation and others, still represented in living assemblages elsewhere, that are useful for paleoecologic interpretations.Stratigraphy and biogeographic affinities of the late Aptian–Campanian ostracods of the Potiguar and Sergipe basins in northeastern Brazil.
