The Austin chalk cuesta is a prominent topographic feature which trends northeast across central Texas from Austin through Waco and Dallas. The escarpment is formed through differential erosion of beds at the contact between the Austin chalk and Eagle Ford: shale, the overlying chalk forming the cuesta. The area described in this paper is situated 6 miles west of Dallas, south of the Trinity River Cross Valley.
