About This Publication
The publication comprises 24 structural dip cross sections, spaced 15 to 20 mi apart along the Texas coast, and 4 structural strike cross sections. Dip sections extend from near the Wilcox outcrop to the coastline. Tops of formations were chosen by correlations with Wilcox, Vicksburg, and Frio stratigraphic cross sections constructed in previous geothermal investigations. Formations include upper Oligocene to Pleistocene (undifferentiated); Frio; Vicksburg-Jackson (undifferentiated); upper and lower Claiborne (upper Claiborne being the Yegua Formation); and upper, middle, and lower Wilcox.

The cross sections are accompanied by a base map showing well locations and a text briefly describing the geologic history of the Tertiary sediments in the Texas Gulf Coast.
