This brief summary of the geology of Yellowstone National Park includes a stratigraphic column for the northern portion of the park. The summary discusses Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic time, emphasizing the Cenozoic because most of the visible rocks and features in the park formed during this time. The stratigraphic column can be accessed as a Word or PDF file.
