DEVELOPMENT OF A GEOLOGIC GUIDE FOR FLORISSANT FOSSIL BEDS NATIONAL MONUMENT
The rock units portrayed on the geologic maps are then put into context with an illustration of a stratigraphic column. Each rock layer is further described with photos in outcrop and as a hand sample. Fossils are illustrated for the fossiliferous layers. In depth descriptions of each rock layer include lithology, deposition, paleontology (if applicable), and locations where outcrops can be viewed. The guide ends with a brief text describing the geologic history of the area and a customized time scale, placing the deposition of the Florissant Formation and other surrounding units into context with the entirety of geologic time.
