STRATIGRAPHIC AND DEPOSITIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE MOENKOPI FORMATION, SOUTHEASTERN UTAH by R. Blakey I ABSTRACT The Triassic Moenkopi Formation of southeastern Utah comprises red and yellowish gray siltstone, sand­ stone, limestone, mudstone, and local conglomerate.

ABSTRACT: In southeastern Utah, the Triassic Moenkopi Formation is composed mainly of red and yellowish-gray siltstone, sandstone, mudstone, and limestone. Continuity of individual units is one of the characteristics of this formation and provides a basic for regional correlation.

For the purpose of this study, the Moenkopi Forma­. The Organ Rock Formation or Organ Rock Shale is a formation within the late Pennsylvanian to early Permian Cutler Group and is deposited across southeastern Utah, northwestern New Mexico, and northeastern Arizona.

This formation notably outcrops around Canyonlands National Park, Natural Bridges National Monument, and Monument vassilyk.comes: Cedar Mesa Sandstone. The Moenkopi Formation is easily recognized by its chocolate brown color, and in the vicinity of Lee's Ferry it forms the gentle slopes and low cliffs in the vicinity of the campground.

One of the most obvious characteristics of the formation is the thin horizontal stratification so prominently displayed wherever a fresh surface is exposed. The Moenkopi Formation is a geological formation that is spread across the U.S.

Part of the Colorado Plateau and Basin and Range, this red sandstone was laid down in the Lower Triassic and possibly part of the Middle Triassic, around Country: Southwestern United States.
