Stratigraphy and depositional environments of the Late Jurassic Hanifa Formation along the Tuwaiq Escarpment, Saudi Arabia
A sequence stratigraphic framework of the Late Jurassic (Oxfordian) Hanifa Formation at its exposure in Central Arabia is presented for the first time. This study offers the first high-resolution stratigraphic framework ...
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 ...
Architecture of a mid-Cretaceous patch reef: High resolution mapping provides new insight into facies geometries and ecological relationships at Paul Spur, Bisbee, Arizona.
Patch reef complexes are commonly found in the shelf interior of carbonate platforms. These small scattered buildups are potential hydrocarbon targets in the Maverick Basin and more broadly within Cretaceous reservoirs in ...
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 ...
