Title: Stratigraphy of Waller and Harris Counties, Texas

Author(s): R. L. Beckelhymer (2)


The writer discusses the stratigraphy of Waller and Harris Counties, Texas, a total thickness of 11,004 feet of Gulf Coastal Plain formations. He describes their lithologic characteristics and faunal markers, ranging from the Lissie formation (Pleistocene) into the Wilcox (Eocene). An attempt is made to give an accurate description of the formations penetrated, by a study of logs, electrical surveys, well cores, and cuttings. The composite stratigraphic section necessarily shows fixed intervals, but it is not the intention of the writer to give the impression that they remain constant for that is not true; they vary both updip and downdip.
