Permian Platforms and Reefs in the Guadalupe and Hueco Mountains
Permian Platforms and Reefs in the Guadalupe and Hueco Mountains - The Guadalupe and Hueco Mountains are exquisite natural laboratories for studying the stratigraphy, depositional facies, and diagenetic overprint of Permian platform and reef carbonates. SEPM Field Guide No. 9 emphasizes the stratigraphic framework, facies, and diagenesis of a Lower Permian (Wolfcampian) low-relief carbonate platform outcropping in the Hueco Mountains. It also emphasizes an Upper Permian (Guadalupian) steep-rimmed platform of the Guadalupe Mountains. This successful three-day trip stemmed for a 2000 joint SEPM/IAS Research Conference entitled Permo- Carboniferous Carbonate Platforms and Reefs based in El Paso, Texas.
