Friday Field Foto #6: Sand-rich turbidite deposits

December 8, 2006

This is in the desert of west Texas…in the Delaware Mountains. I spent many weeks here when I was working on my master’s (2000-2003). Because of the school calendar, we had to go in the summer mostly. It was frickin’ hot! But a beautiful place, a lot of rock. The cool thing about this place is that each of those cliff-faces has the same layers of rock…so, we were able to map out how they changed in some detail.

Check out more photos of the Delawares here.
