Moenkopi Formation

Age: Early Triassic (247.2 - 251.902 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Moenkopi Formation

Description: Red-orange, chocolate-brown, and medium-brown sandstone, silty sandstone, and minor siltstone and conglomerate; generally divisible into two to four members, but are undivided on the map; lower contact is the Tr-1 unconformity of Pipiringos and OSullivan (1978), which is slightly angular and is found at the top of the more red-brown sandstone of the underlying Cutler Formation; total thickness is 0 to 400 meters (0-1,300 ft) or more, thinning regionally eastward and may be missing on the Uncompahgre uplift in the northeast and very thick in rim synclines adjacent to salt-cored anticlines; Middle (?) to Lower Triassic.
