Title: Geologic Section from Fisher County Through Andrews County, Texas, to Eddy County, New Mexico

Author(s): Robert I. Dickey (2)


The geologic section presented herewith has been compiled from sample logs of the West Texas-New Mexico Permian basin. It shows chiefly the continuity of the formations of the Whitehorse group from the east side to the west side of the basin. The gradation of sediments in the San Andres and Clear Fork from a shale and evaporite section on the east side outcrop to an almost solid dolomite section in the subsurface in the basin is brought out by the large scale of the section and detailed character of the logs. The Grayburg formation, the oldest formation of the Whitehorse group in the West Texas Permian basin, is defined in this paper.
