Summary

The structure of and depth to the floor of the Mississippi Valley andRough Creel Grabens and surrounding regionswere interpreted from aeromagnetic data.This cover contains the depth contours for the region within thisstudy area and was clipped from the larger cover.This cover was not plotted in the Wabash Valley map series, but isincluded for those users who are interested in comparing the depthto basement from geologic data (bcontours and bfaults) to the depthto magnetic rocks (usually basement) from geophysical data.Depth units in this cover arekilometers below sea level, whereas depth units in bcontours are inthousands of feet below sea level.
