Figure 36

Figure 36--Southwest-northeast cross section showing stratigraphic relations of beds in upper Permian in southwestern Kansas. Note uniform thickness of Whitehorse Formation, lateral persistence of Day Creek Dolomite, which is mostly anhydrite, and northward thinning of "Taloga Formation" by post-Permian erosion.

Cross section from Morton to Greeley counties; Day Creek Dol. pinches out in Greeley, around 50 feet thick; Whitehorse Fm consistently 300 to 400 feet; Taloga thickens to south 100 to 400 feet thick.
