During the Carboniferous a carbonate shelf covered areas of the central U.S, including Kansas, with the outer shelf and shelf margin intermittently extending through southern Kansas and northern Oklahoma. The regional setting resulted in deposition of relatively laterally continuous carbonate and siliciclastic facies belts. Areally sparse subsurface well data and surface exposures have led to the interpretation that most structures on the craton are simply shallow draped anticlines and associated synclines primarily reflecting general aspects of regional structure and depositional and erosional heterogeneity. Models that assume a broad continuous shelf relegate local structure to being minor or non-existent. However,...
