Figure 16--Map of northeastern Kansas showing thickness of limestones of Mississippian age.

Isopachous lines connecting points of equal thickness are drawn at intervals of 50 feet. Checkered pattern shows area from which Mississippian limestones were removed by post-Mississippian erosion. Crosses show locations of wells from which samples have been examined. Dots show locations of wells from which only logs are available.

Thinner in North (Brown, Nemaha) and thicker in south (southern Osage), but variable.
