Depositional Environment of The Monkton Formation, Snake Mountain, Central Vermont

Stratigraphic relations in the Lower Cambrian Monkton Quartzite of Snake Mountain were analyzed to determine the depositional environment of the red and white sandstones, sandy dolostones and mudstones. Three measured sections were subdivided into four lithofacies, which have been interpreted as various sub-environments within a marine tidal environment.
