The community of Marmarth is the largest in Slope County with a population of around Marmarth is in the extreme SW corner of the county and the Little Missouri River runs through the east edge of town.   Glaciation was the main geologic influence on much of North Dakota’s landscape. The Ice Age, a time geologists also refer to as the Pleistocene Epoch, includes most of the past three million years of geologic time. Glaciers advanced over the northern plains several times during the Ice Age, reaching northern and eastern North Dakota. When it wasn’t glaciated, [ ].

The geology of North Dakota includes thick sequences oil and coal bearing sedimentary rocks formed in shallow seas in the Paleozoic and Mesozoic, as well as terrestrial deposits from the Cenozoic on top of ancient Precambrian crystalline basement rocks.

The state has extensive oil and gas, sand and gravel, coal, groundwater and other natural resources. North Dakota's Geologic Legacy is a finalist in the Southwestern North Dakota book category for the Midwest Book Awards.

North Dakota's Geologic Legacy is the story of the landscape why it looks like it does and how it formed. The book is designed for the physical and the armchair traveler. Most of the features portrayed can be seen from the s: 6. The badlands of southwestern North Dakota are carved into an astonishing variety of unusually shaped landforms.
