Three transects were conducted across the main channel of the abandoned Teays River valley in Pike, Jackson, and Scioto Counties, Ohio, to evaluate the lithology and general stratigraphy of valley-fill deposits. Field observations obtained from both deep borings and surface excavations indicate that much of the Pleistocene lacustrine fill has been removed and that the modern landscape reflects primarily a sequence of erosional and secondary fill surfaces. Thus, the current valley fill includes lacustrine clays and channel sands, as well as younger sediments of varied origin.
