Permian sedimentary rocks of North-Central Texas are exposed in a northeast-striking outcrop belt that extends from overlying Cretaceus strata composing the Edwards Plateau in the south to the Red River and Panhandle region in the north. The gently inclined (0.50), west-dipping Permian strata, over 5,500 ft (1,680 m) of section, are represented in this chapter as a transect of about 180 mi (290 km) in the northern part of the outcrop area (Fig. 1).
