Granite Wash, Palo Duro Basin, Texas (04)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

04 Net Sand Thickness:

The data used to define the net-sandstone map for the Granite Wash consist of all clastic sediments that are sand size or greater (Dutton, 1980), including granite fragments and feldspar grains derived from the granitic uplifts that define the basin margins (for example, the Amarillo Uplift). This is actually a net-isolith map. The sand isolith was gridded (c4granitewash).
