This study focuses on the rock crust that occurs in sheltered areas in the limestone cliffs along the lower Pecos River, the Rio Grande near the Pecos confluence, and canyon tributaries of the two rivers. A preliminary paleoclimate reconstruction based on 14 AMS C 14 dates indicates the Lower Pecos experienced dry to wet climate fluctuations during the late Holocene. This reconstruction generally agrees with other models established for Texas
