24. Isopach

Isopachs are lines that connect areas with the same sediment or stratum thickness. This map shows the thickness of the Moscow Shale in northern Pennsylvania and southern New York with the dark blue lines. This map also contains information in the thickness of limestone in the same area. This map and others like it can be used to study erosion patterns.
