Late Cretaceous paleogeography of western North America was dominated by three tectonic belts that extended virtually the length of the Cordillera: (1) an Andean-type volcanic-plutonic magmatic arc on the west (i.e., Cordilleran Magmatic Arc), (2) a thin-skinned fold-and-thrust belt on the east (initiated in mid-Cretaceous time), and (3) an hinterland (zone of metamorphism, magmatism, .   The megaflora of the Hell Creek and lower Fort Union formations in the western Dakotas: Vegetational response to climate change, the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary event, and rapid marine transgression.

The Betic Ophiolites consist of numerous tectonic slices, metric to kilometric in size, of eclogitized mafic and ultramafic rocks associated to oceanic metasediments, deriving from the Betic oceanic domain. The outcrop of these ophiolites is aligned along km in the Mulhacén Complex of the Nevado-Filábride Domain, located at the center-eastern zone of the Betic Cordillera (SE Spain).Cited by:

  The late Jurassic–early Cretaceous is commonly considered the only cold climatic interval in Earth history without any direct evidence of polar ice. A newly discovered dropstone-bearing interval from the subtropical Iberian Basin (western Tethys) is described and provides evidence of contemporaneous polar glaciation.

The Cretaceous (/ k r ɪ ˈ t eɪ. ʃ ə s /, krih-TAY-shəs) is a geological period that lasted from about to 66 million years ago (mya). It is the third and final period Cretaceous of the Western Tethys book the Mesozoic Era, as well as the name is derived from the Latin creta, "chalk".It is usually abbreviated K, for its German translation Kreide.

The Cretaceous was a period with a relatively warm climate. Evolution of the Arctic-North Atlantic and the Western Tethys Author(s) Evolution of the Arctic-North Atlantic and the Western Tethys.

The Western Interior Seaway (also called the Cretaceous Seaway, the Niobraran Sea, the North American Inland Sea, and the Western Interior Sea) was a large inland sea that existed during the mid- to late Cretaceous period as well as the very early Paleogene, splitting the continent of North America into two landmasses, Laramidia to the west and Appalachia to the east.

At its largest, the Western Interior Seaway stretched from the Rockies to the Appalachians in the east, some km wide.

The Tethys Ocean / ˈ t iː θ ɪ s, ˈ t ɛ θ ɪ s / (Greek: Τηθύς Tēthús), also called the Tethys Sea or the Neotethys, was an ocean during much of the Mesozoic Era located between the ancient continents of Gondwana and Laurasia, before the opening of the Indian and Atlantic oceans during the Cretaceous Period.

The Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway covered North America to various extents from the Albian through Maastrichtian.

During this time, the marine waters were home to. In the Tethys region, the evolution of North Africa and the Arabian Plates are intimately involved with the occurrence of hydrocarbons in both regions.
