Paleogeography Map

Map showing facies distribution early on in Merriam deposition. Outcrop locations shown in red are areas where channels are present, and rectangles indicate areas of closely-spaced data. Lines of cross-sections through the field area are also shown. Subsurface data from O’Connor (1977) was used as an aid in interpreting trends of channels.
