Have you ever wanted to learn more about the Permian Reef Complex of the Guadalupe Mountains? Probably not, but Dr. Peter A. Scholle, the Director and State Geologist of the New Mexico Bureau of Mines & Mineral Resources of New Mexico Tech has provided a complete virtual field trip for those who would. Visitors can read and view pictures of the area, the structural history of the mountains, the stratigraphic setting, depositional and diagenetic patterns, and much more. The graphics and well written text would be reason enough to pay the site a visit, but the field trip road logs and site descriptions offer added interest and usability for anyone interested in visiting the area.
