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 only 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. There's a problem loading this menu right now.5/5(1). ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: Two maps on 2 folded leaves in pocket.

Description: ix, pages: illustrations, maps ; 28 cm. The Solitario displays geologic features that span Geology of the Solitario the entire regional history of Trans-Pecos Texas since Cambrian time.

The visible structure (shown above) 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. Summary: The Solitario displays geologic features that span virtually the entire regional history of Trans-Pecos Texas since Cambrian time.

The visible structure (shown above) is the eroded remnant of the roof of a radially symmetric late Eocene (38 Ma) laccolith. The Solitario is nearly surrounded by Tertiary volcanic, volcaniclastic, and intrusive rocks that are representative of magmatism in Trans-Pecos Texas.

These rocks erupted from numerous local and distant sources between 47 and at least 24 Ma : $ Geology of the Solitario Dome, Trans-Pecos Texas: Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic Sedimentation, Tectonism, and Magmatism Abstract The Solitario is a circular, to krn-diameter, mid-Tertiary laccolithic dome and caldera in southern Trans-Pecos Texas; it is among the world's largest by: 1.

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. Geology of the Solitario, Trans-Pecos Texas (Geological Society of America Special Paper ): Discussion and reply Henry, Christopher R.

The formation lies in the Chihuahuan Desert ecoregion of the United in type: Laccolith. almost all of Trans-Pecos Texas is underlain by Precambrian rocks similar to those that crop out at the surface.

Cambrian to Pennsylvanian rocks crop out in the Franklin Mountains, Marathon Basin, Solitario, and at Persimmon Gap. These rocks represent a transgressive, then regressive, marine sequence that was caught between the North.

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 y: United States. Geology of the Solitario, Trans-Pecos Texas (Geological Society of America Special Paper ): Discussion and replyAuthor: Christopher R.
