Subsurface Stratigraphic Picks for the Top of the Foremost Formation (Belly River Group), Alberta Plains (tabular data, tab delimited format) The dataset includes subsurface stratigraphic picks for the top of the Foremost Formation (Belly River Group) in the Alberta Plains (Townships 1 to 52, Ranges 1W4 to 5W5) made from downhole wireline geophysical well logs. The top of the Foremost was picked at the base of a continuous sandstone or siltstone bed (low-gamma-ray) of variable thickness overlying the Taber coal zone. Well data were screened to detect errors resulting from deviated wells, as well as incorrect ground and kelly bushing elevation data. We used statistical methods to identify local and regional statistical outliers, which were examined individually. 2014-05-08 2020-05-05 Government of Alberta AGS-Info@aer.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technologyalberta plainsbedrock geologybelly river groupcampanianforemost formationmappingstratigraphic picksstratigraphysubsurface mappingupper cretaceouswell log signature72e72l72m73d73e82g82h82i82j82o82p83a83b83g83halbertacanadaGovernment information Alberta GeoportalHTML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/be241b64570244c9bfeaf20ff02a8a23/html DIG_2013_0030.zipother https://ags.aer.ca/document/DIG/DIG_2013_0030.zip
