About This Publication
The Texas Panhandle traditionally has been an important source of mineral resources, especially petroleum, and resources will continue to contribute heavily to the economy of the area.  The seven cross sections of this report synthesize the subsurface geology of the region. They illustrate the genetic stratigraphic framework of the pre-evaporite, principally Pennsylvanian and Lower Permian, rocks in those parts of the Anadarko, Dalhart, Palo Duro, and northern Midland Basins that lie within the Texas Panhandle. Six depositional systems and component facies are delineated and illustrated on the cross sections: wadi plain, sabkha, fan delta, delta, shelf and shelf margin, and basin and slope.

The cross sections are all published at a vertical scale of 1 inch = 800 ft and a horizontal scale of 1 inch = 12 mi. In addition to the cross sections, the report also contains a bibliography of papers on Panhandle geology and modern and ancient depositional systems similar to those of the Panhandle.
