Woodbine Formation, East Texas Basin (06)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

06 Continuity:

Sand-body continuity can be found by using a generalized map of depositional systems (Oliver, 1971). A more detailed facies map is available (Calavan, 1985). Site studies are needed to asses the site-specific complexity of this heterogeneous system.
