Geologic Review of Proposed Dallas -Fort Worth Area Site for the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC)

Abstract

In June 1987, the Texas National Research Laboratory Commission tasked the Bureau of Economic Geology at The University of Texas at Austin with reviewing and providing a brief report on the geology of the proposed site for the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Additionally, they requested a surface geologic map of the site. An informal task force was assembled for this purpose, comprising Jay A. Raney (Coordinator and Structural Geology) from the Bureau of Economic Geology, Peter M. Allen (Environmental Geology and Stratigraphy) from Baylor University, Donald F. Reaser (Structural Geology and Stratigraphy) from The University of Texas at Arlington, and Edward W. Collins (Structural Geology) from the Bureau of Economic Geology. This report by the task force provides an explanatory note for the geologic map (Plate 1) of the proposed site near Waxahachie, Texas.
