Summary

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. A map-based website was developed to dessiminate sample sites, field notes, and chemical analyses for major element oxides (Ca, Mg, Al, Fe, and Si) for the samples listed here at http://kgs.uky.edu/kylimestone/Sample Method: face Sample Type: increment Sampled From: Bottom Sampled Top: 19 ftSampled Bottom: 18 ftSampled Bottom: 18 ftGeologic [...]
