Title: Subsurface Structure of Some Unsymmetrical Anticlines in the Rocky Mountains

Author(s): John G. Bartram, J. E. Hupp (2)


In the Rocky Mountain states the location of deep test wells on unsymmetrical anticlines has been a hazardous undertaking, and wells in surprisingly large numbers have been poorly located. This paper is a study by means of cross sections of many such folds. Past mistakes are analysed and the suggestion made that more attention be paid to regional conditions and the character of the entire anticline and less to the local dips at the surface axis. It will be necessary to survey the course of deep wells and determine the amount and direction of their deviation from vertical, in order thoroughly to understand subsurface structure on unsymmetrical anticlines.
