  • The Galisteo Formation is a geologic formation in New Mexico. It crops out over a limited area between Sandia Crest and the southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains, with an outlier at the western feet of the San Miguel Mountains. The formation was first described by F.V. Hayden, who named the formation the Galisteo sand group and noted that these sandstone beds dipped from 5 to 50 degrees and varied in color from off-white to brick red. He could find no fossils other than petrified logs, some of which were enormous. The formation is primarily fluvial sandstone and mudstone. Paleocurrent directions indicate sources in the Brazos-Sangre de Cristo Geanticline to the northeast and the Nacimiento Mountains to the northwest. There are no indications of sediments from Sandia Crest to the south, suggesting that Sandia Crest was not uplifted until after the Eocene. The presence of Precambrian clasts in the upper part of the formation in the San Miguel Mountains was some of the first evidence for the existence of the Pajarito Uplift, a Laramide structure occupying what is now the southern Espanola Basin between the current locations of Los Alamos and Santa Fe that later foundered into the Rio Grande Rift. The most important fossil site in the Galisteo Formation, at Arroyo del Tuerto, contains numerous fossil remains of titanotheres dating to the Duchesnean Stage, about 42 to 38 million years ago. The formation is otherwise largely barren of fossils. The formation originally included older beds now assigned to the Diamond Tail Formation, from which it is separated by a significant disconformity. The Galisteo Formation likely correlates with the El Rito Formation to the north of the Jemez Mountains. (en)
