Petrophysical Constraints on Deformation Styles in Aztec ...

— Adjacent stratigraphic units that have undergone an identical deformation history often show variability with regard to deformation style. We present one such example and attribute the variability in deformation to variations in host rock properties. The Aztec sandstone of southern Nevada has two distinct zones of deformation style, the Lower and Upper structural domains. …

 · The lighter or cream colored rock is mostly limestone deposited in shallow seas around 300 million years ago. This area was uplifted above the sea and a dry period followed that deposited sand dunes over the area. The dunes eventually solidified into rock or sandstone over the millions of years to follow and the high iron content of the sand ...
