Geology of the Solitario, Trans-Pecos Texas Download PDF EPUB FB2

The Solitario displays geologic features that span virtually the entire regional history of Trans-Pecos Texas since Cambrian time. The visible structure (cover) is the eroded remnant of the roof of a radially symmetric late Eocene (38 Ma) laccolith. Erosion of the laccolith roof has exposed a remarkably complete stratigraphic section.

This is the Geology of the Solitario book I have ever seen over the Solitario. This collapsed dome has represntitive strata from most of the geologically significant areas of Texas. This book is a treasure trove of information and comes with very informative full sized maps of the solitario.

The Trans-Pecos once witnessed powerful volcanic activity. There was the massive eruption of the Chinati Volcano, the lava flows of the Davis Mountains.

And 35 million years ago, magma began to swell beneath what’s now the Solitario. The mushroom-shaped intrusion – a laccolith – pressed upwards on older rock, creating a high dome.

The Trans-Pecos, as originally defined in by the Texas geologist Robert T. Hill, is the portion of Texas that lies west of the Pecos River. The term is considered synonymous with Far West Texas, a subdivision of West Texas. The Trans-Pecos is part of the Chihuahuan Desert, the largest desert in North is the most mountainous and arid portion of the state, and most of its area Country: United States.

April, Geologic Setting Although the onset of magmatism in the Trans-Pecos was as early as 77Ma, the majority of igneous activity took place from Ma and that is the timeframe taken into account for this topic.

Magmatism within the Ma timeframe occurred in four different phases beginning shortly after the cessation of Laramide folding. The Solitario developed between 36 and 35Ma,during the 38 to 32Ma main phase of magmatism in Trans-Pecos Texas (Henry and IGNEOUS EVOLUTION OF THE SOLITARIO, TRANS-PECOS TEXAS Geological Society of America Bulletin, August Figure 1.
