The article provides an overview of Pennsylvanian Tyler Formation in North Dakota. It states that the formation consists of interbedded meter to submeter scale beds of shale, local sandstone lenses, siltstone, and limestone. It indicates that the clastic sediments of the formation oiginated in highlands south of the Williston Basin and spread over the eroded Mississippian surface that was flooded during the initial advance of the Absaroka Sea.
