When Hendrickson unearthed her find, she knew she was looking at a Late Cretaceous
The Peruviella dolium paleocommunity occurs between the two facies and thus occupied the extreme nearshore position of the rising Fredericksburg sea during the Cretaceous
Vast and huge deposits of easily mineable (200m depth to exposed surface) bed rocks ofSulaiman, Kirthar and Balochistan basins are being estimated as limestone deposits about 1205 billion ton/ht with breakup as Jurassic 490bt, Cretaceous
75bt, Paleocene 18bt, and Eocene 622bt; shale deposits 5799bt with breakup as Jurassic 33bt, Cretaceous
418bt, Paleocene 27bt, Eocene 4131ht and Oligocene-Pliocene 1190bt; sandstone deposits 5730bt with breakup as Cretaceous
1129bt, Paleocene 15bt, Eocene 953bt and Oligocene-Pliocene 3640bt.
Previous studies suggest that the Late Cretaceous
skies were only occupied by much larger pterosaur species and birds, but this new finding, which is reported in the Royal Society journal Open Science, provides crucial information about the diversity and success of Late Cretaceous
is characterised by poor source rocks.
It includes an interval in the "Garumn" facies, which is the informal term for the marls, clays and gypsums, mainly reddish, deposited in shallow marine, coastal or continental environments of south-western Europe during the last part of the Cretaceous
and the early Paleogene (Leymerie, 1862).

Research, paleontologists described the newly discovered abelisaur.
Basin represents one of the worlds last underexplored Cretaceous
(a prolific petroleum generating aged source rock) sedimentary basins.
Five of the cores contain layers about 86 million to 100 million years old, in the Late Cretaceous
In particular, the dinosaur's long cochlea, a part of the inner ear, is a signature of bigger, badder late Cretaceous
furball displays the entire structural diversity of modern mammalian skin and hairs.
The presence of kaolinite in Lower Cretaceous
materials of Alava Block, Spain is also attributed to inheritance from soils developed on rocks in the source area (Sanguesa et al.
