USGS - science for a changing world


This is a polygon coverage of the structure contours of the Calico sequence boundary in the Kaiparowits Plateau, southern Utah. Sequence boundary elevations are based on 166 drill sites. The Calico sequence boundary occurs from 50-100 ft below the base of the John Henry Member, therefore an inferred elevation of the sequence boundary was used at numerous locations along the outcrop where the John Henry Member was mapped. The outside polygon defines the base of the coal-bearing Calico and A-sequences of the Straight Cliffs Formation east of 112 degrees of longitude. The northern boundary is delineated by the Paunsaugunt fault and volcanic rocks of Tertiary age.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
