Definitions for "Hitz"
The Hitz Limestone Bed is a portion of the Saluda Member of the Drakes Formation in southernmost Indiana and northern Kentucky. The Hitz is a micritic molluscan-rich limestone that lies immediately above the laminated dolomitic peritidal strata of the Saluda. The Hitz represents lagoonal strata of the C6 sequence. Northward, these lagoonal strata thicken and are known as the Saluda, as at the outcrops near Brookville.
