Abstract

This paper is a study of the Brallier and Chemung formations of west Highland County, Virginia. The limits of the Brallier formation are determined on the basis ot faunal and lithological evidence, and correlations made with formations in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia.

The field work was carried on during the latter part of the summer of 1947 and the identification and correlations worked out in the winter of 1947 and the spring of 1948.
