Abstract

The strata now designated as Morrison in western New Mexico have been known by a variety of names since the beginning of geological exploration in the West. The nomenclature has become confused due to the many facies that are present. Recent exploration for uranium has renewed interest in the stratigraphy of the Morrison formation.
