About This Publication
This cross section set traverses four Cenozoic depositional subprovinces: the Rio Grande Embayment, San Marcos Arch, Houston Embayment, and Sabine Arch. For each of these areas, the authors used closely spaced well logs to outline stratigraphic surfaces, parasequences, and marker beds to delineate regional sequence boundaries, internal stratal architectures, erosional truncation surfaces, and depositional facies associations. Also included are depth ranges of reservoirs in fields adjacent to each line of section. This synthesis of stratigraphic, lithofacies, paleogeographic, and structural features having known petroleum resources provides an overview of a major petroleum province. An important reference tool, this cross section set provides the reader with a framework for detailed analyses of the stratigraphic units, their buried slope-system equivalents, and their hydrocarbon plays.
