On a regional scale, the Judith River assemblages bear greatest resemblance to those of southern Alberta, especially in the absence of the pleurosternid Compsemys and kinosternoids (mud turtles). The Judith River Fm. and Albertan assemblages are notably distinct from those of New Mexico and further south, but they uniquely share some taxa (e.g. Petrology and reservoir paragenesis in the Sussex "B" sandstone of the Upper Cretaceous Cody Shale, House Creek and Porcupine fields, Powder River basin, Wyoming Bulletin G.

An analysis of Métis vernacular log architecture on the South Saskatchewan River illustrates this clearly with individual building components derived from a number of different by:

Carbonate rocks of the Middle Devonian Ratner Formation in southern Saskatchewan vary from undolomitized, to partly dolomitized, to completely dolomitized. Two major types of medium and coarsely crystalline dolomite are differentiated in the formation: medium crystalline, planar-e to planar-s (ME) dolomite, and medium to coarsely crystalline, Cited by: 7.
