... The exposed and abandoned Teays Valley has been recognized and studied in south-central Ohio for a century and a half. By 1900, the upper reaches had been traced by bedrock strath up present deeper drainages through West Virginia into Virginia. By 1945, the 1.5-mi-wide main valley had been...

...EDWARD C RHODEHAMEL; CHARLES W CARLSTON Abstract The segment of the abandoned pre-Pleistocene Teays Valley between Scary and Huntington, W. Va. stands 130–240 feet above the Ohio and Kanawha rivers, and its bedrock floor slopes westward at about 0.6 foot per mile. The bedrock floor is overlain...

... 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...

... to 200 km upstream from the Pleistocene ice front, in Teays Valley, West Virginia. A total of 303 oriented paleomagnetic specimens represent a composite stratigraphic section from the Minford Silt Member of the Teays Formation in Teays Valley. Of these, 224 specimens carry a stable reversed magnetization...

... Kentucky River valley and its main tributaries, the Old Licking and South Fork. The Old Kentucky River system was severed from the Teays when glaciation dammed its downstream reaches, forcing a reversal in flow direction between its junction with the Teays in west-central Ohio and Carrollton, Kentucky...

... and northwest. Modern evidence of the Teays is now presented as discontinuous segments of a bedrock valley entrenched within the uplands of West Virginia, Kentucky, and southeastern Ohio, and buried by younger glacial sediments further to the west ( Fig. 1 ). The Old Kentucky River (Stop 1A) was the largest...
