Twenty-two accurate profiles are presented showing the stratigraphic sequence across characteristic oil fields in the Mid-Continent. Most of these profiles have been prepared by members of the Association thoroughly familiar with the local district.
From this information, a short historical discussion concerning time and rate of folding is outlined. Considering the information presented by the profiles, a discussion of the previously published literature concerning methods of folding has been added. This discussion embodies a consideration of tangential compression, torsional stress, differential settling, and local vertical movement as possible means of structural development.
No conclusions are attempted, but the most probable means of structural development are suggested in the discussion.
