The talk was entitled, "Stratigraphy of the Devonian Antrim Shale on the Southeastern Margin of the Michigan Basin" and focused on breaking down 'State-Line Stratigraphy' problems for the Devonian succession in southeast Michigan, northern Indiana, and northwest Ohio. Acknowledgement is made to the donors of the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund for partial support of this research.
