WILCOX-CARRIZO MARINE AND INTERTIDAL DEPOSITS, BASTROP AREA, CENTRAL TEXAS
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22nd, 2016.
7:00 am Pickle/8:00 am Buc-ee's in Bastrop
End ~3:00 pm
LEADER: CHRIS DENISON
The 4 locations we will visit provide an opportunity to examine and discuss depositional environments and stratigraphic relationships in the uppermost Wilcox Group and lowermost Claiborne Group as developed in Bastrop County. Red Bluff (Stop 3) and Golf Course (Stop 4) are frequently visited by field parties from local colleges, societies and the petroleum industry, as reservoir analogs and as potential equivalents for the subsurface Wilcox.
Ideas around the spatial and temporal relationships presented in this field guide have been developed over several years and numerous visits to the locations we will see today, combined with critical appraisal of the many publications concerning the stratigraphy of Bastrop County and beyond, but it remains a work-in-progress .
This is a re-run of the highly successful trip that Chris led in the spring.
