Title: Whitehorse-San Andres Contact on and adjacent to Central Basin Platform: ABSTRACT

Author(s): R. T. Cox, N. B. Winter

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Two types of dolomitic limestones are recognized between the basal Grayburg sand and the Glorieta member, each representing a different type of depositional environment and separated by an unconformity. The upper beds are of Whitehorse age and the lower beds are equivalent to the San Andres formation of southeastern New Mexico. The Goldsmith formation was defined in this paper and illustrated by cross sections.
