The chemostratigraphic (δ13Ccarb) record of the Lexington Limestone in central Kentucky is a high-resolution record in Chatfieldian and lower Edenian strata. Parts of the Lexington Limestone in this region reflect an anomalous structurally controlled carbonate buildup with complex facies relationships. Chemostratigraphic analysis of buildup and off-buildup composite sections, which exemplify the Lexington facies mosaic, reveals an overall decreasing trend in 13C compositions throughout the formation and into the overlying Clays Ferry Formation. Superimposed on this trend are four locally correlative excursions. The most significant excursion is found within the Logana Member. The Guttenberg excursion is...
