The Mountains, the Rocks, the Oil & Gas

The Mountains, The Rocks, The Oil & Gas
Bill Ayrton

This two-sided educational poster, compiled by Bill Ayrton in 2007 explains the geology of the Western Sedimentary Basin. On side one, it relates a typical stratigraphic column to the layered rocks found in a typical well, their uses, their fossils and how they contribute to our changing landscape. Side two illustrates diagrammatically how the WCSB evolved, how the Rocky Mountains were formed, and how glaciation sculpted our beautiful mountain scenery. It also includes diagrammatic cross-sections of the WCSB, the Front Ranges and five typical oil and gas fields.
