[William E Edmunds; Pennsylvania. Bureau of Topographic and Geologic Survey.]. Comments: Secondary unit description from USGS Lexicon website (ref. OH) and OHCore drilling in poorly exposed Lower and Middle Pennsylvanian strata of Pottsville and Allegheny Groups in northeastern OH has led to better understanding of key Pennsylvanian marine units and has identified previously unknown marine and marine-influenced strata in lower part of Pottsville Group.

The Pennsylvanian Pottsville Formation is a mapped bedrock unit in Pennsylvania, western Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, and is a major ridge-former in the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians of the eastern United States.

The Pottsville Formation is conspicuous at many sites along the Allegheny Front, the eastern escarpment of the Allegheny or Appalachian PlateauPrimary: sandstone, conglomerate. Allegheny series (Lower Coal Measures) developed in valley of Allegheny River. Underlies Monongahela series, the body between the two series being marked by final outcrop of these shales exposed just above Ohio River at Pittsburg, and overlies formation XII (coarse, massive white sandstone, about feet thick), which constitutes bottom of productive coal measures, and which appears to.

Pottsville Series, in geology, division of the Late Carboniferous Epoch ( million to million years ago).It was named for exposures studied in the region of Pottsville, in the anthracite coal district of Pennsylvania.

Found from Pennsylvania to Ohio and from Maryland to Virginia, the Pottsville Series is the lowermost major division of the Pennsylvanian in the area and underlies rocks of. Order forms are included at the back of this book for your convenience.
