Title: Reflected Buried Hills in the Oil Fields of Persia, Egypt, and Mexico

Author(s): Sidney Powers


Reflected buried hills are topographic highs on old land surfaces which are reflected in the superposed sedimentary deposits. They have been found by drilling in many of the oil fields of the Mid-Continent region where the presence of buried topographic features has been proved. Descriptions of buried hills in foreign oil fields, which perchance include examples of buried folds, form the subject of the present paper. It is hoped thus to call attention to the world-wide importance, both scientific and economic, of buried hills.
