This data is from the geologic map of the Paducah 1�x2� Sheet,digitized by the Illinois State Geological Survey, John Nelson directing.We obtained the digitized, exported coverage of faults and geologyfrom Barb Stiff ( 1995.09.05Our intent is to show the overall fault pattern, and to show the locationsof the main exposed and near-surface faults for comparison to deep subsurfacestructures. We made little attempt to edit details of the digitized faults,beyond adding tick marks to indicate dip directions of a few normal faults.For details such as exact locations, fault dips, separations, and cross-cutting relations, users should consult the original geologic maps.
