Description: Richfield Springs and Cooperstown 15-minute quadrangles, located in east-central New York, are underlain by a sequence of fossiliferous shales, siltstones, sandstones, conglomerates, and various limestones ranging in age from Medial Ordovician to Late Devonian. Bedrock strata dip gently southwestwardly at approximately 100 feet per mile. Important unconformitites occur at the top of the Frankfort Shale (Middle Ordovician), Herkimer Sandstone (Middle Silurian), and Kalkberg Limestone (Lower Devonian).
