Also known as DPP, Bonebed 51
Where: Alberta, Canada (50.7° N, 111.5° W: paleocoordinates 58.1° N, 76.1° W)
• coordinate stated in text
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Dinosaur Park Formation (Belly River Group), Late/Upper Campanian (83.5 - 70.6 Ma)
• Microvertebrate sites of Brinkman (1990) are "...placed in stratigraphic sequence by reference to a disconformity located about sixty meters below the base of the Lethbridge Coal (Eberth, 1990). The stratigraphic position of each site is expressed in terms of meters above or below the disconformity (Fig. 2, Brinkman, 1990)."
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: channel lag; lenticular, medium-grained, intraclastic, carbonaceous sandstone
Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
Collected by L. J. Strong in 1985; reposited in the TMP
Collection methods: bulk, surface (float), sieve,
