      Texas Memorial Museum. A new larger species of Sthenodectes is based on two well preserved skulls and other material from the late Bridgerian or early Uintan (middle or late Eocene) of the Agua Fria area in Trans-Pecos Texas. It was derived from the Pecos River valley and varies in thickness and particle size from a thin veneer of sandy loam in the southwest to a thick deposit of clay loam in the northeast (Reeves ; Holliday a). The Pleistocene lake deposits underlie, are interbedded with, or are inset against these eolian sediments (fig. ).

      PECOS RUINS edited by David Grant Noble Pecos Pueblo was an important focus of Peublo culture for hundreds of years for Europeans arrived in the Southwest. It was a strategic trading center for the Plains Indians, central to the Pueblo Revolt against the Spanish in , and later an important stop for merchants on the Santa Fe : Paperback. Buda Limestone (Early Cretaceous) at surface, covers 2 % of this area. Buda Limestone; Eastern part of Trans-Pecos and High Plains and Western part of Trans-Pecos and North, central, and south Texas including Quaternary for all of west Texas.

        The Pecos River has avoided some of the challenges faced by the state’s other waterways. But it has not been spared from the ecological changes brought by . Pecos NHP is 6, acres in size and lies in the Upper Pecos River Valley east of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The park’s predominant vegetation is pinyon-juniper woodland. Other habitats include grassland areas, riparian habitat along the Pecos River and Glorieta Creek, .

Texas Tech University, BoxLubbock, TX ABSTRACT-The mammals of the Carrol Creek local fauna, radiocarbon dated at 32, + YBP, were found in a late Pleistocene (Middle Wisconsin, Rancholabrean Land Mammal Age) deposit in Donley Co., Texas.

Thirteen of 17 taxa were at least tentatively identified to species. Neofiber. Strategraphic positions for the Candelaria local fauna (late Uintan), the Porvenir local fauna (early Chadronian), Little Egypt, and Airstrip local faunas (Chadronian) within the Vieja Group are given.

The Porvenir local fauna contains 32 genera in common with Chadronian faunas to the north and six genera in common with the Lapoint fauna. GEOLOGY, PHYSIOGRAPHY, AND GROUNDWATER RESOURCES Within the Basin and Range Province, the Earth's crust (and upper mantle) has been stretched up to % of its original width.

The entire region has been subjected to extension that thinned and cracked the crust as it was pulled apart, creating large faults. By the end of Pliocene time, about Ma, the Pecos fluvial system and its tributaries had buried their valleys and covered the divides that formerly separated them.

The cold, moist climate of the late Pleistocene, 70 to Ky, enabled the Pecos Slope, Pecos Valley, and Llano Estacado into West Texas to.
