MM0042. Geologic Map of the Central Hueco Bolson, Acala-Fort Hancock-Esperanza Region, Texas, by E. W. Collins and J. A. Raney. Oversize color map, scale 1:100,000 and booklet (26 p., 6 figs.), 2002. MM0042, $12.00.

This surface geologic map shows the areal distribution of bedrock basin-fill and surficial geologic units and primary geologic structural elements such as faults and bedding attitudes of the Central Hueco Bolson in West Texas. Construction of the map entailed field mapping and use of aerial photographs, existing maps, and the authors' 1:24,000-scale, open-file geologic maps that were digitized, coded, and compiled in a Geographic Information System. This map is an essential data set for part of the Texas-Mexico border area that is undergoing urban growth, diminishing water resources, and environmental stress due to development.
