    1) synorogenic = during a mountain building event; 2) conglomerates = sedimentary rocks made of rounded, pebble to boulder sized fragmentary material; 3) Late Cretaceous = toward the end of the era of the dinosaurs; 4) Sevier Orogeny = one of several mountain building events that thrust up today's Rocky Mountains; 5) thrusting = a type of faulting wherein the crust is thickened by low angle reverse faults that result from compressional stresses; 6) Utah-Wyoming Thrust Belt = a geologic province along the Utah-Wyoming border region that is characterized by thrust tectonics and has been the focus of some recent oil exploration
