Y. to Shohola (Pike County), Pa. illustrating the stratigraphic intervals of the post-Tully (Late Devonian) sequence. Stratigraphic nomenclature for the rocks of the Shohola region is based on Fletcher and Woodrow, 1970), while the nomenclature of the Whitney Point rocks is after Rickard, 1975. What rocks are under your feet? From "A Stratigraphic Framework for the Catskill Facies, Southeastern New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania"
