Abstract

Based on seismic analysis in conjuction with well control, 10 time-stratigraphic sequences and sub-sequences are mapped in Phanerozoic strata of the northern Williston basin. These reveal that the northern Williston basin experienced three development episodes: initial subsidence during the time of deposition of the Sauk sequence (540-505 Ma); stability during the time of deposition of the Tippecanoe to Upper Colorado sequences of periodic and incongruent uplift and tilting of the western and eastern flanks of the basin relative to its centre. -from Authors
