The Early Late Cretaceous ("High Cretaceous") was marked by several critical events. The first was the widening Atlantic rift. The Atlantic Ocean: (a) had become wide enough to become a complete barrier to east-west dispersal over its entire length, except in the far north, and (b) was circulating meaningful amounts of ocean water north and south.

Relative motions between oceanic and continental plates in the Pacific basin by David C Engebretson () 9 editions published between and in English and.

The pole obtained from magnetization of the plutons is discordant to poles from Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous rocks of North America. Assuming a Late Jurassic magnetization age, the discordance can be explained by a 60°CW rotation of the Blue Mountains relative to North America (Wilson and Cox, ; Hillhouse et al., ).

Paleomagnetic analysis was conducted on 31 sites of the Ventura redbed Member of the Midnight Peak Formation located in the Methow-Pasayten belt, north-central Washington. Single high-stability components of magnetization, chiefly retained by high-unblocking temperature hematite exist in specimens from all but two of the sites.

Directions calculated from these components were found to Cited by: 2. A paleomagnetic study of Cretaceous White Mountains plutonic complexes in New Hampshire and Vermont yields high unblocking temperature, dual polarity magnetizations in different types of igneous rocks.

The resulting pole position for three plutons (° N, ° E, A_95 = °, age = Ma) agrees with previously published mid-Cretaceous poles for North America, North Cascades together give a Cited by: Controversy surrounds the Late Cretaceous tectonic history of northwestern North America, with many studies suggesting significant terrane translation for parts of the Insular and Intermontane superterranes and the plutonic rocks of the Coast Plutonic Complex–North Cascades range that separate the two superterranes (e.g., Monger et al., ; Cowan et al., ) ().Cited by: 5.

An early Late Cretaceous age for plutonism and regional metamor- phism in much of the North Cascades of northwest Washington and southwest British Columbia has been well documented and extensively.

A similar paleomagnetic study of Upper Cretaceous Paleomagnetism of four late cretaceous plutons, volcaniclastic, and intrusive units in the Tucson Mountains (N = 26) indicates that these rocks have been rotated 7°±14° clockwise relative to stable North America.

A direct comparison of paleomagnetic directions for the lower unit of the Cat Mountain Tuff shows a 17°± Paleomagnetic results have been obtained from the Late Cretaceous‐early Tertiary igneous complexes of the north‐central Montana alkalic province.

It is the third and final period of the Mesozoic Era, as well as the name is derived from the Latin creta, "chalk".It is usually abbreviated K, for its German translation Kreide.

Cretaceous Period - Cretaceous Period - Correlation: Correlation of Cretaceous rocks is usually accomplished using fossils. Ammonites are the most widely employed fossils because of their frequency of occurrence and geographic extent, but no single fossil group is capable of worldwide correlation of all sedimentary rocks.
