Title: Preliminary Correlation of the Texas and New Mexico Permian

Author(s): Robin Willis (2)


The stratigraphy of the outcrops and of the subsurface of the Texas and New Mexico Permian formations is summarized. Four geographical divisions are considered, namely, the Panhandle arch, the main western Texas and eastern New Mexico basin, the Guadalupian barriers, and the trans-Pecos basin. Formations are correlated within each basin, and the problem of correlating across the Guadalupian barriers is discussed. Oil-bearing formations are tentatively correlated with surface formations. Finally a systematic summary of the stratigraphic history of the Permian of this region is attempted.
