... The Chihuahua trough is a right-lateral pull-apart basin that began to form ca. 159 to ca. 156 Ma (Oxfordian) during a period of relative counterclockwise rotation of the North American plate. The Chihuahua trough developed as a right step between two right-lateral fault systems—the Texas “zone...

... and thin to thick-bedded carbonate strata, respectively. The Quitman Formation was deposited along the eastern slope of the Chihuahua trough during the late Aptian and early Albian. The formation is interpreted as the oldest transgressive phase of 4 transgressive-regressive cycles that occur throughout...

The Sierra del Nido block was a paleographic high throughout the Paleozoic, and the Aldama platform developed on this block during the Cretaceous. The most recent...
