Lithofacies predicted from Neural Network model were input into PETRA to evaluate correlations and geological significance. St Louis A, B, C and D surfaces were picked as parasequence surfaces. The interpolated lithofacies profiles illustrate the St Louis Limestone geometries and depositional patterns. The oolite shoals were deposited on the structural highs during the transgressive and high-stand periods. Oolite shoal deposits have an ellipsoid elongated geometry, and display aggradational and progradational accumulation patterns.
