This study examines the usefulness of accommodation plots (Fischer plots) as a means of correlating mixed carbonate-siliciclastic strata in the subsurface. Fischer plots have been widely used to extract accommodation changes from carbonate platforms, but there are few published studies of siliciclastic or mixed carbonate-siliciclastic environments. The Middle Devonian of the Appalachian Basin is penetrated by thousands of wells, is exposed in numerous exceptional outcrops, and is an excellent place to test the usefulness of accommodation history plots as correlation tools. In the past, researchers have used cores, well cuttings, well logs, and outcrop gamma-ray profiles to correlate between...
