Trans-Pecos Texas Geology Resources - compiled by Piper Martin 1/2002, revised 4/2011

Trans-Pecos Overview:

This arid and sparsely populated region contains some of the most exciting geology in Texas. While most of the state is quite flat and less than 2500 feet above sea level, the Trans-Pecos area experienced the Laramide Orogeny--resulting in Basin and Range topography--as well as extensive Tertiary volcanism and faulting. These events elevated the basins to about 4000 feet above sea level with mountain ranges that jut up 2000 to 3000 additional feet. The hydrology of the region is also of interest since most of it is characterized by internal drainage, that is, when most of the water evaporates and the remainder seeps into the basin fill to recharge aquifers. The Trans-Pecos boundaries are roughly defined on the south and west by the Rio Grande River, on the north by the thirty-second parallel (also the boundary with New Mexico), on the northeast by the western margins of the Pecos River valley, and on the southeast by the Edwards Plateau.

How to use this guide:

This guide is arranged by type of resource: online resources, guidebooks/field guides, monographs, agency publications (like the USGS or the Bureau of Economic Geology), and theses or dissertations. The call numbers in this guide all refer to the item's location in the UT Walter Geology Library so please copy and paste them into the Library Catalog. This guide does not include journal articles, so if you would like to look up journal or periodical articles (including articles from AAPG or GSA Bulletins) and other full text resources on the Trans-Pecos, please go to Geosciences Links. This research guide is certainly not exhaustive; rather, the resources listed here will hopefully give you a good start in your research--many other items in the library are about the Trans-Pecos. Lastly, do not hesitate to consult a librarian for help or advice at any time in the research process.

Online Resources

There are not very many online sources for the Trans-Pecos. However, Virtual Landscapes of Texas' presentation of the Dumble Survey includes some of the first mapping of the area and two UT geology professors have excellent bibliographies for Trans-Pecos hydrology and igneous petrology.

W.H. von Streeruwitz's contribution to the Dumble Survey: Second annual report of the Geological Survey of Texas Publication and Third annual report of the Geological Survey of Texas Publication

Dr. John Sharp's bibliography of Trans-Pecos References

Visit the Geology Library's Virtual Field Trip Guides for pictures and explanatory text about the following locales: Permian Reef, Hueco Tanks, the Franklin Mountains, McKittrick Canyon, and several guides and road logs for areas near El Paso.


Monographs are books or book-like entities; for example, theses and dissertations from schools other than UT Austin could be found here. Their common characteristic is that the whole volume is largely devoted to one particular subject. The following are listed in call number order and can be found in the Walter Geology Library unless otherwise noted.
