Kope Formation
Alan Goldstein

The Kope Formation (equivalent to the Clays Ferry Formation and known as the
Eden Formation in older texts) is the lowest formation of the Cincinnatian stage
of the Upper Ordovician. It is dominately shale with very small lenses of skeletal
limestone throughout

This album will focus on fossils from a series of outcrops in the Carrollton area
of Carroll County, Kentucky. The Kope and its equivalents have numerous
exposures throughout northern Kentucky, southwest Ohio and southeast Indiana.
