The geology of Runnels County
MetadataShow full item record
Runnels County is situated near the center of the State of Texas, in what is usually referred to as "West Texas." The rocks of the county belong to the Lower Permian division of the Paleozoic Group, the Comanchean System of the Mcsozoic Group, and the Tertiary (?) and Pleistocene divisions of the Cenozoic Group. The geology of this county was done in connection with the making of a section of the Permian rocks along the Colorado River. The areal work was largely done by Mr. Waite, who also assisted in making certain parts of the section.
