Geosphere, June 2014, v. 10, p. 564-584, doi:10.1130/GES00997.1, Plate 3 - 1:100,000-scale balanced cross sections, with simplified Paleozoic stratigraphic divisions (Cl—lower Cambrian, Cu—upper Cambrian, O—Ordovician, S—Silurian, D—Devonian, M—Mississippian, IPP—Pennsylvanian and Permian; see Fig. 3), and all faults with <300 m of offset omitted. Quaternary and Tertiary rocks omitted for simplicity. Top row shows present-day deformed geometry, and bottom row shows partially restored geometry, with motion on extensional faults retrodeformed. Translucent areas above modern erosion surface represent eroded rock. Justifications for individual decisions made in drafting and retrodeforming cross sections are annotated. Lower right corner shows explanation of erosion levels.
