The Lower Cretaceous Cedar Mountain Formation has recently been subdivided into five members including in ascending order, the Buckhorn Conglomerate, the Yellow Cat Member, the Poison Strip Sandstone, the Ruby Ranch Member, and the Mussentuchit Member. The Yellow Cat Member, the Poison Strip Sandstone, and the Ruby ranch member outcrop in the study area near Arches National Park. The Poison Strip Sandstone is a fluvial sheet sandstone, whereas the Yellow Cat and the Ruby Ranch members are predominantly calcareous mudstone; all contain a diverse vertebrate fauna and are dated as Barremian to lower Albian.

This study characterizes and interprets the fluvial systems responsible for deposition of the Poison Strip Sandstone through analysis of extensive field data and comparison to modern and ancient fluvial systems. Conclusions on fluvial style are related to depositional controls and to regional Lower Cretaceous rocks.
