Fusulines, various genera of brachiopoda, and possibly other types of fossils were found. There are also references to barometric readings. Locations include but are not limited to Wolf Camp Hills, Chinati Mountains, and Sierra Diablo Mountains. The maps contain alphanumeric codes corresponding to a locality. Cooper uses these codes throughout his notes to refer to localities. Some coordinates are included. Pages 0539-0564.
