Abstract

This thesis is a summation of lithologic analyses of three stratigraphic sections: the Danvers 1-X Harris-Federal test, the Honaker Trail locality, and the Raplee locality in San Juan Canyon, San Juan County, Utah (FIg. 1) In these localities, the Paradox Formation as defined by Wengerd and Strickland (1954, p.2169) has been studied, inasmuch as the formation is known to contain limestone bioherms ("reefs") (Wengerd, 1951) in conjunction with biostromal strata.
