A paleomagnetic study was conducted involving the Upper Fairview (Upper Ordovician, Maysvillian) Formation and Lower Fairview Formation. The purpose of this study was to determine the possibility of measuring the geomagnetic polarity reversals occurring in paleozoic limestones. This thesis is primarily concerned with, and concentrates on, the latter twenty one feet and its results. For information concerning the remaining section, see Musser (1977).
