dc.descriptionDaniel Raymond Kohl is a member of the Class of 2010 of Washington and Lee University.en_US
dc.description.abstractThis study investigates the Laramide foreland syn-orogenic sediments preserved in the Denver Basin, CO and interprets the Late Cretaceous-Eocene tectonic and climate history of Central Colorado. This thesis is divided into 3 chapters. Chapter I provides an introduction to the Denver Basin and the Front Range, interpreting the stratigraphy to provide support and background for the following chapters. Chapter 2 analyses the Late Paleocene to Eocene fluvial sediments in the Denver Basin and interprets the deposits to be a large distributive fluvial system or megafan which formed during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum. Chapter 3 uses detrital apatite and zircon fission track thermochronology to analyze the Front Range and Denver Basin thermal history.en_US
