Paluxy Sandstone, East Texas Basin

Comments on Geologic Parameters

6 Continuity:

Sand-body continuity was related to the depositional systems and facies map (Caughey, 1977) and a map of the salt structures (domes, diapirs, etc.) in the East Texas Basin (Jackson and Seni, 1984) as a means to determine the continuity of the Paluxy Formation.
