More details


"The 1973 Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) Guidebook 14 (GB-14, Brown and others, 1973)  addresses outcrops of Upper Pennsylvanian and Lower Permian sedimentary rocks deposited on the Eastern Shelf of the West Texas Basin. Specific units in GB0014 are the Cisco Group (Virgilian Series), the Canyon Group (Missourian Series), the upper part of the Strawn Group (Desmoinesian Series), and the Wichita-Albany Group (Lower Permian Wolfcampian Series). The guidebook was based on fieldwork and mapping undertaken from 1957 to 1973 by L. F. Brown Jr. and his students at Baylor and The University of Texas at Austin. The purpose of this supplement is to update GB0014 by adding subsequent sequence-stratigraphic interpretations (e.g., Brown and others, 1987, 1990) and to streamline the field trip to account for deterioration in outcrop quality."
