The primary purpose of this paper is to interpret the geologic history of the West Texas region during Permian time, although only the last chapter is actually devoted to the subject. To lay the framework for this interpretation, earlier chapters describe two standard sections of the West Texas Permian, the manner of sedimentation of the Permian rocks, and the correlation of the Permian rocks throughout the West Texas region. The information and conclusions presented in these chapters form the basis of the conclusions regarding geologic history that are given in the final chapter.
