Characterizing transitional flow deposits in the proximal Brushy Canyon Formation, Texas
Transitional flow deposits are identified, characterized, and placed in a stratigraphic context in the proximal Brushy Canyon Formation, Guadalupe Mountains, Texas. Transitional flows are sand-laden, mud-rich sediment ...
Outcrop-derived facies model and cycle architecture of the Tansill G27-G28 high-frequency sequences, Rattlesnake Canyon, New Mexico
High-relief, steep-rimmed carbonate margins are significant geologic features documented in a variety of locations throughout the geologic record. The Tansill Formation, the shallow-water platform equivalent of the ...
Isolating lithologic controls on landscape morphology in the Guadalupe Mountains, New Mexico and Texas
In many geomorphic studies, lithologic contrasts are often acknowledged as important for landscape form, but are otherwise ignored in attempts to infer tectonic forcing or climatic control from topography. It remains ...
Anatomy, dimensions, and significance of the penultimate Yates tepee-shelf crest complex, G25 Hairpin HFS, Guadalupe Mountains, New Mexico and Texas
The steep-rimmed Permian Capitan platform in the Guadalupe Mountains has been studied in extensive detail to understand the effect of eustacy on platform architecture as seen in continuously exposed 700 m relief shelf-to-basin ...
