About This Publication
Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Tertiary sediments in the East Texas Basin have been structurally modified by movement of Middle Jurassic Louann Salt. Important structural elements in the basin include salt diapirs, deep salt anticlines and turtle-structure anticlines as well as prominent fault systems. This set of eight regional structural cross sections shows the general stratigraphy and structure of the basin and illustrates the effect of salt movement. Accompanying the cross sections is a brief discussion of the regional structure and stratigraphy. A table of lithologic descriptions for each formation, correlation notes, and selected references is also included.
