Interpretation of the Depositional Environments and Soft-Sediment Deformation in the Upper Tanglewood Member (Upper Ordovician) of the Lexington Limestone, Central Kentucky, U.S.A.

Dibya R. Koirala
The upper Tanglewood Member is the final member of the Lexington Limestone and is well-known for its soft-sediment deformation. This study has confirmed the carbonate-shoal-complex origin of the unit, and detailed study shows that its development took place during five small-scale, sequence-like, fining-upward cycles related to eustasy and tectonics. Four lithofacies are represented in the unit. Facies analysis of each cycle shows that the thickest and coarsest part of each cycle corresponds to previously uplifted...
