Description

Central section of the long roadcut on KS-183 north of the Saline River Valley. This cut exposes an almost complete section through the Fort Hays Limestone member of the Cretaceous Niobrara Formation. These chalk beds were laid down at the bottom of the shallow tropical Western Interior Seaway. The thick beds of the Fort Hays member are extensively bioturbated and reworked storm deposits. Individual beds are traceable for many miles. Shaly interbeds reflect deeper water depositional conditions.
