Description Sedimentology of Mesa Rica Sandstone in Tucumcari Basin, New Mexico EPUB

The Mesa Rica Sandstone in the Tucumcari Basin of east-central New Mexico represents deposits from a lobate sand-rich delta complex. Log-probability curves of the grain-size distributions when compared to the work of Visher indicate environments ranging from distributary channels to marine wave deposits.

Coalesced delta-front sheet-like sandstone bodies from highly avulsive distributary channels: the low-accommodation Mesa Rica Sandstone (Dakota Group, New Mexico, U.S.A.) Anna E. Van Yperen, John M. Holbrook, Miquel Poyatos-Moré, and Ivar Midtkandal. Coalesced delta-front sheet-like sandstone bodies from highly avulsive distributary channels: the low-accommodation Mesa Rica Sandstone (Dakota Group, New Mexico, U.S.A.) Article Jul The two sandstone units of the Mesa Rica Sandstone represent contemporaneous fluvio‐deltaic deposition in the Tucumcari sub‐basin (Western Interior Basin) during two regressive phases.

Multivalley deposits pass down‐dip into single‐story channel sandstones and eventually into contemporaneous distributary channels and delta‐front strata. The two sandstone units of the Mesa Rica Sandstone represent contemporaneous fluvio‐deltaic deposition in the Tucumcari sub‐basin (Western Interior Basin) during two regressive phases.
