Dynamics of the eastern edge of the Rio Grande Rift
The Western U.S. has experienced widespread extension during the past 10’s of millions of years, largely within the Basin and Range and Rio Grande Rift provinces. Tomography results from previous studies revealed narrow ...
Crustal seismic velocity models of Texas
Our investigation distinguishes six distinct geologic regions within Texas and determines a preferred one-dimensional (1D) crustal structure for each. These models, which consist of flat layers of varying thicknesses and ...
Nitrate removal efficiency in hyporheic zones : the effect of temperature and bedform dynamics
Fundamental understanding of bedform-induced hyporheic flow and how it controls the nitrate dynamics in the hyporheic zone (HZ) is critical for environmental and ecological problems, such as eutrophication, deterioration ...
Lithofacies, diagenesis, and reservoir quality of the unconventional Wolfcampian succession in the Southeast Midland Basin, West Texas
The Lower Permian Wolfcampian basinal succession in the Midland Basin has become an important unconventional reservoir. Reservoir characterization of Wolfcampian strata is challenging because of the complex arrangement of ...
A general transform for reversible seismic data processing by nonstationary filtering
Stratigraphic and structural analysis of the Neogene sediments of the offshore portion of the Salina del Istmo Basin, southeastern Mexico
Southeastern México has been affected by regional and local tectonic events. Regional tectonic events are the Gulf of México opening and the lateral movement of micro-plates on the Pacific margin. The local tectonic ...
Pore pressure within dipping reservoirs in overpressured basins
A systematic study of how mudstone permeability impacts reservoir pore pressure is important to understand the regional fluid field within sedimentary basins and the control of sediment properties on subsurface pressure. ...
Stratigraphy, vertebrate paleontology and depositional history of the Ogallala Group in Blanco and Yellowhouse canyons, northwestern Texas
The late Miocene Ogallala Group is up to 90 meters thick in exposures along the eastern escarpment of the High Plains in Crosby, Garza and Lubbock Counties, Texas. Two formations are mapped in this section. The lower ...
