Hydrogeologic sections of the Edwards Aquifer and its confining units in the San Antonio area, Texas; 1986; WRI; 85-4259; Small, T. A.

Summary

Twenty-seven geohydrology sections illustrate structural and stratigraphic relationships within the 180-mi-long Edwards aquifer. These sections were used to interpret the location of barriers within the Edwards aquifer. The sections are oriented generally south-southeast, which is approximately normal to both the east-northeast trending Edwards aquifer and the strike of the major faults of the Balcones fault zone. Section lengths represent the distance necessary to cross the aquifer, which is 5 to 40 mi wide. The updip (north) end of the sections are drawn to indicate exposures of the Glen Rose Formation; from there the sections indicate downdip geologic conditions within the freshwater zone and the saline water zone. The sections [...]
