Katz and Liro (1987) suggest that our spatially distributed thermal-maturity data in the Anadarko basin be presented only as an isoreflectance map and that regression analysis of vitrinite reflectance versus depth (Cardott and Lambert, 1985) should not be done. We contend that both contoured data and regression analysis of the data have merit and should be used together.

The objective in our study was to delineate the general thermal maturation trend of the Woodford Shale in the Anadarko basin. We should modify our purpose of the regression analysis to state that it is used both to predict vitrinite...
