Description: This will be a multidisciplinary session
devoted to all studies and aspects of the Western
Interior Seaway and its global correlatives.  Research
on the Western Interior Seaway has become increasingly
more diverse and detailed over the past decade. New
areas and regions have been studied and interpreted
and some of the more classic areas have been
re-investigated utilizing new interpretations.
Advanced research techniques in stratigraphy,
sedimentology, geochemistry, paleontology,
micropaleontology, structural geology, tectonics,
paleoclimatology, paleobiology, etc. continuously
reinforce, update, modify and enhance the paradigm.
This session will provide an opportunity for many
individuals, researchers, industry geologists, and
graduate students to present their most recent work.
