..., the intersection of the Ouachita front with the Arbuckle Mountains, the Ardmore basin, and the Marietta-Sherman basin is covered by the Cretaceous overlap. Therefore, the relation of the Ouachita facies with the Arbuckle facies can be determined only by subsurface information. There is a regional southwest trend...

.... The contrast between the rocks of the Ouachita Mountains and those of the Arbuckle region, though real, is not abrupt. Some units are identical, others differ relatively little, and others differ strongly. Most of the contrasted facies have transitional relationships. Some transitions are gradual; others have...

...T. A. Hendricks; M. M. Knechtel; Josiah Bridge ABSTRACT Black Knob Ridge is situated at the west end of the Ouachita Mountains, near Atoka, and about 15 miles east of the east end of the Arbuckle Mountains. It is the westernmost area that reveals the facies of pre-Pennsylvanian rocks characteristic...

... or Arbuckle facies. In the Ouachita Mountains, rocks of late Mississippian and Pennsylvanian age reach a maximum thickness of at least 22,000 feet and are divided into two major groups. These are (1) strata widely exposed in the central part of the Ouachita Mountains, and (2) strata of frontal zone Ouachita...

The Valley is an eastward extension of the McAlester basin of southeastern Oklahoma. Pennsylvanian Atoka sediments...

The axis of the Ouachita geosyncline—the geosyncline in which the rocks of the Ouachita Mountain facies were deposited—has an east-west...

... that the suggestion was offered earlier by C. L. Dake ( 1921 ), “that the rocks of the Ouachita Mountains region were thrust northward a long distance over rocks that have the same facies as those of the Arbuckle Mountains, nearby to the west.” The simple concept of overthrusting in the Ouachita Mountains...

... may be the explanation for such contrasts as the early Paleozoic Ouachita facies (pontic facies) of the Ouachita Mountains with the contemporaneous, dominantly limestone facies (lagoonal) of the Arbuckle Mountains. In like manner, the Ordovician Marathon facies (pontic) may be separated by a reef...
