Re: Source needed - Rock Formations and their interpretations

On Wikipedia they started to collate the info at 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dinosaur_bearing_rock_formations and 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fossil_sites, but the list is far from 
complete. It's a good first stop to grab some papers tho, which as Tom said you 
will need to do in any case, because dating a formation, paleoeco analysis etc 
are dependent on good data and techniques, and such information as found in any 
older compilation is often obsolete.

 Yes, you are asking WAAAYYYYY too
 You are going to have to do this piece meal. The 2nd Edition
 of the
 Dinosauria (specifically, Weihampel et al.'s chapter on
 distribution) will give you the major fossil bearing beds;
 but you will
 have to find the individual papers on each formation one by
 one to get the
 issues of their genesis and paleoenvironment.
