Figure 1C--A-A' cross section with Kinderhook and Osagean stratigraphic units defined in cores and electric logs. These units are unconformably overlain by Pennsylvanian strata. Post-depositional regional uplift, subaerial exposure, and differential erosion of the ramp strata at the post-Mississippian unconformity resulted in paleotopographic highs (buried hills). Logs consist of gamma ray (GR) and suites of resistivity and neutron logs (R, N).

Kinderhook runs all across section, consistent thickness; Osagian starts near Moore BP Twin 4 and thickens to West.
