Title: Stratigraphy, Eastern Midland Basin, Texas: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Lincoln R. Page, John Emery Adams

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The thick series of Red-beds along the eastern edge of the Southern Permian basin is divided into groups and formations that can be recognized both on the outcrops and in the subsurface. Gradations between near-shore, marine and restricted sea deposits are recognized and described, and unconformities in the section are traced out into the basin. The Triassic-Permian boundary line is redefined as occurring between the top of the newly defined Dewey Lake Red-beds and the base of the overlying Tecovas silts.
