Title: Significance of Some of the Surface Structures of Central and Western Kansas

Author(s): W. H. Twenhofel


Surface structures of the Permian strata of Harvey and adjacent counties, of Cretaceous limestones of Russell and neighboring counties, and of the Smoky Hill chalk and Fort Hays limestone of Trego, Gove, Rooks and other counties are described and an interpretation in each case attempted. Those of the Harvey County region are referred to the solution of salt beds and the change of anhydrite to gypsum. These structures are thought to be confined to strata close to the surface. The surface structures of the Cretaceous strata are thought to be due to adjustments of these strata to the base on which they rest and to the irregularities of deposition within the strata themselves.
