... 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...

...JAMES T. TELLER Abstract The preglacial rivers of southwestern Ohio, northern Kentucky, and southeastern Indiana flowed toward the north and joined with the west-flowing trunk river, the Teays, in central Ohio. The main tributary valleys to the Teays River in this region—containing the Old Kentucky...
