Carbonate deposition was largely suppressed during this time, and instead, a thick ( ft) section of shallow- to deep-water spiculite and shale was deposited.   In , a group of Amarillo businessmen, eager to imitate the instant millionaires in the eastern half of Texas, contacted a geology professor at the University of Oklahoma who had studied the underground formations in the Panhandle at the turn of the century.

High Plains, region in the United States, comprising the southern portion of the Great Plains, or, in its most specific sense, the northern portion of the Llano Estacado (“Staked Plain”).

In portions of the area the lower beds of this shale member for a thickness of 20 or 30 feet or more are pink, as in the eastern part of Bush Canyon, or red, as in the vicinity of Miller Creek.

Geological Survey and Texas Bureau of Economic Geology from until During the early part of the study as many as 8 geologists participated, but the present discussion is based on the work of the authors, who carried the investigation to a conclusion.

GEOLOGY. The geologic history of Texas is recorded in rocks found in outcrops throughout the state and in rocks penetrated by boreholes drilled primarily in the search for oil and natural gas. These rocks indicate that Texas has undergone a long and dynamic history of igneous activity, structural deformation, and sedimentary processes.

landforms of today—the surface features of the great plains The mountainous sections of the Great Plains were formed long before the remaining areas were outlined by erosion. Uplift of the Black Hills and the Central Texas Uplift began as the continental interior was raised and the last Cretaceous sea was displaced, 65 to 70 million years ago.

vital water resources in Texas. The factors of surface geology, climate, soils, and availability of groundwater are discussed in terms of the historical development of the state’s agriculture and ranching industries, as well as patterns of settlement and urban growth.

The “pre-Texas” landmass, attached to the North American continental core, was repeatedly whacked into other landmasses, forcefully pulled apart again, and moved about the globe on mobile crustal. The Ogallala Aquifer (oh-guh-LAH-luh) is a shallow water table aquifer surrounded by sand, silt, clay, and gravel located beneath the Great Plains in the United States.

One of the world's largest aquifers, it underlies an area of approximatelysq mi (, km 2) in portions of eight states (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas). Caprock Escarpment, geological feature, Texas, U.S., that forms a natural transition between the High Plains (west) and the western edge of the North Central Plains (east).

It forms the eastern border of the semiarid Llano Estacado (Spanish: “Staked Plain”) and is a prominent feature of Borden, Briscoe, Crosby, Dickens, Floyd, and Motley counties, where it rises in places as high as 1,   Evaporites, including gypsum (or anhydrite) and salt, are the most soluble of common rocks; they are dissolved readily to form caves, sinkholes, disappearing streams, and other karst features that typically are found in limestones and dolomites.

The four basic requirements for evaporite karst to develop are: (1) a deposit of gypsum or salt; (2) water, unsaturated with CaSO4 or NaCl; (3) an Cited by: Volume: 23 () Issue: 7.

Extending from the Panhandle south to the Pecos River, the High Plains have been described as a sea of waving grasslands. The 20 million acres of this region fills most of the “handle portion” of the state.Three states with a panhandle are Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Texas.

A panhandle is a narrow strip of land that extends into another states territory.
