Geology of the Marathon Region, Texas

Description: From abstract: This report describes the geology of the Marathon region, in trans-Pecos Texas. The Marathon region lies on the edge of the Mexican Highlands province, where that province merges into the Great Plains on the east. Structurally, the region is a broad dome of Cretaceous rocks, from whose central part the Cretaceous cover has been stripped away, leaving an area of low country in the center, the Marathon Basin. Here strongly folded Palcozoic rocks are exposed. The Monument Spring and Marathon quadrangles, described in detail in this report, extend across the basin area.
