The surface divide near the New Mexico/Texas State line separates the Tularosa Basin (a closed basin) and the Hueco Basin (a through-flowing basin) topographically.

The surface divide does not correspond to a structural or ground-water divide, and the two basins are connected by interbasin ground-water flow from New Mexico into Texas (Wilkins. James M. Barker, Barry S. Kues, George S.

Over much of the basin lowlands, the upper feet of basin fill consists of clay, silt, sand, and gravel deposited in a lake of middle to late Pliocene age. Fine-grained lacustrine sediments compose from 30 to more than 70 percent of the deposits. Get this from a library.

CHEMICAL AND ISOTOPIC CONSTRAINTS ON SOURCE-WATERS AND CONNECTIVITY OF BASIN-FILL AQUIFERS. The New Mexico Bureau of Mines and Mineral Resources, University of New Mexico, New Mexico Geological Society and the Pecos River Commission have also contributed signifi- cant studies of the ground-water resources of New Mexico in terms of eight major areas: High Plains, Rio Grande Valley, Canadian and Cimarron River Basins, Pecos River Basin.

Thicker upper basin fill within the northwest basin indicates that the basin subsided more in the northwest than in the southeast during deposition of the upper basin fill. The two major faults that bound the Hueco graben on the west and southwest, the East Franklin Mountains fault and Amargosa fault, respectively, have had the most recent.

The basin fill deposits can be broadly divided into lower basin fill, upper basin fill, and surficial deposits (Fig. 2; Collins and Raney, ). The Pliocene–Pleistocene Fort Hancock and Camp Rice Formations (Strain, ) represent the upper part of the upper basin : Pawan Budhathoki, Diane I.

Doser, Anita Thapalia, Richard P. Langford, Victor M. Avila. The Sacramento Mountains of south-central New Mexico include a broad area of forested, well-watered terrain, the source of perennial streams flowing east toward the Roswell Basin and the Pecos River and of intermittent streams flowing west into the Tularosa -development and recent water level data indicate groundwater movement from Tularosa Valley to the Cited by: In the Mesilla Basin in southern New Mexico, we identified zones of mixing between recharging irrigation water with groundwater within the depth range of ~ 50– m below the ground surface.

Chemical and isotopic data were obtained from ground water and surface water throughout the Middle Rio Grande Basin (MRGB), New Mexico, and supplemented with selected data from the U.S. Geological.

The area trends north-south along the east side of Tularosa-Hueco Bolson astride the Texas-New Mexico border approximately 40 km northeast of El Paso. Because of its proximity to El Paso, geothermal water in the Hueco Tanks area could be a significant resource.

Hueco Bolson is an asymmetric graben. A new USGS study investigates how concentrations of arsenic in three drinking-water supply wells change at daily, seasonal, and yearly time scales. Arsenic variability and related factors identified have potential implications for human health.

Arsenic is a naturally occurring element, but long-term exposure can cause cancer in people.

Existing Interpretations of Colorado and New Mexico Volcanism. Cenozoic volcanism in Colorado and New Mexico is extensive and fairly continuous, and volcanism may not necessarily be an indicator of rift activity (Corti et al., ), thus using the history of volcanism to deduce the onset of rifting is challenging.
