Understanding stratigraphic architecture is paramount in targeting chalks and calculating reserves in the Niobrara Formation. Chalk thickness varies dramatically across the field. Thickness variations in the marl units is also important to understand in that the source bed capacity is a function of marl thickness and TOC by: 1.

Pinel. Integrated paleoenvironmental analysis of the Niobrara Formation: Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway, northern Colorado Article in Palaeogeography Palaeoclimatology Palaeoecology. A “formation” is the fundamental rock unit used to describe the sedimentary geology of a region.

It is a unit that may be identified by its: 1) position in the stratigraphic (rock) column; 2) mapability on the earth’s surface; and 3) mineral/rock characteristics.

The resistant basal beds of the Bridge Creek Member can be traced from the Front Range of Colorado southeast to New Mexico and eastward to Kansas (Cobban and Scott, ; Hattin ). Historically, these beds also were noted as forming benches between the Dakota and Niobrara as described in Figure 4, above (Stose, ).
