Limestone samples collected at quarries, mines, and from core in Kentucky. Samples are associated with collection sites. The overall goal of this research program was to discern relationships between carbonate lithologies, stratigraphic units, and properties such as chemistry and rock porosity. Much of the raw data collected at the sites is contained in archived field notes available on the KGS website.
