Profiles of the basement surface in western Kansas and Nebraska were constructed by drawing smooth curves through the shallowest depths estimated from aeromagnetic anomalies along six widely spaced traverses.

Clusters of shallow depth estimates commonly yield an average estimate within 15 percent of the true depth.
