Abstract

The San Juan Basin Regional Aquifer-System Analysis began in 1984. This report describes rocks of Triassic through Tertiary age in the basin and also describes the regional geologic and stratigraphic framework of the basin's multilayered aquifer system. Maps showing altitude of top, depth to top, and thickness of major geologic units were prepared using geographic information system technology. Results presented form the basis for ground-water flow modeling and geochemical studies of the basin.
