Permian Basin Section-SEPM Core Workshop

Geology of the Capitan Shelf Margin: The Gulf PDB-04 Core
 
Outcrops in the Guadalupe Mountains of southeast New Mexico and West Texas superbly expose the Upper Permian (Upper Guadalupian) Capitan reef and its time-equivalent shelf and basinal strata. These outcrops have long been the focus of considerable research, which has led to several regional stratigraphic, sedimentologic, and diagenetic models that are used worldwide as analogs for various exploration and development plays, as well as the outcrops serving as an invaluable training ground for geologists and engineers alike.
