Title: Chester Rocks of Meade, Hardin, and Breckinridge Counties, Kentucky

Author(s): Ralph E. Stouder (2)


Alternating sandstone, shale, and limestone sediments occur throughout the lower and middle Chester in Indiana and most of Kentucky; however, an abrupt change takes place in the stratigraphic development in the Gasper River region of Kentucky, where the clastic beds of the lower Chester disappear. Although at least three limestone formations in the upper Chester persistently crop out, local abrupt changes in lithologic character of the intervening sediments make difficult a division or description of some of the clastic units. Many of the formations of the Chester series which have been described and named in Indiana and elsewhere are believed to have correlatives in Meade, Hardin, and Breckinridge counties, Kentucky.
