Above: Plunging anticline exposed at the Red Mountain Open Space, Larimer County, Colorado ~27 miles NNW of Fort Collins. Here the Pennsylvania Ingleside Formation displays several carbonate -eolianite cycles overlain by red mudstones of the Owl Canyon Formation. This location was the last stop on the post-conference field trip associated with the RMS-AAPG Meeting held in Denver in mid-late July. The field trip was sponsored by the RMS-SEPM and was led by outgoing RMS-SEPM President, Marshall Deacon (2nd from left).

Information @

This is the website of the RMS-SEPM (Rocky Mountain Section of the Society for Sedimentary Geology). RMS-SEPM exists to provide a stimulating forum within the Rockies geologic community for issues related to sedimentology, stratigraphy, and sedimentary petrology. This is achieved through monthly luncheon technical presentations, diverse though infrequent publication efforts, and sponsorship of field trips and core workshops. The organization also supports sedimentologic and stratigraphic research efforts through the award of three annual graduate student scholarships. To learn more about RMS-SEPM, please feel free to explore this website, review our past newsletters, or visit the SEPM national organization.
