Geologic Review of Propsed Amarillo Area Site for the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC)


In June 1987, the Texas National Research Laboratory Commission commissioned the Bureau of Economic Geology at The University of Texas at Austin to conduct a review and brief report on the geology of the proposed site for the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) in the Amarillo area. They also requested a surface geologic map of the site. An informal task force was assembled for this purpose, including Jay A. Raney (Coordinator), Thomas C. Gustavson, and S. Christopher Caran from the Bureau of Economic Geology. This report is accompanied by the geologic map (Plate 1) of the proposed Amarillo area site in the Texas Panhandle.
