AbstractA digital data set of Late Jurassic to early Late Cretaceous palynomorphs from Western and Northern Canada (and Montana) (Figure 1) has been compiled from both published literature and unpublished theses. Palynological records, securely related to individual samples, from known localities, were transcribed from the literature. The data presented here comprise 956 samples, from 89 sections or wells.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is a digitized set of palynological records from published literature and theses from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, spanning western and northern Canada. Some 956 samples are included in spreadsheet files from wells and measured sections. The intent is to improve the ability of biostratigraphy to determine the ages and environment of deposition of sedimentary strata. It is the result of a multi-year data loading project.
