Detailed comparative studies of the structure of northeastern Oklahoma at the surface and underground have shown that beneath gently tilted and slightly folded rocks at the surface there are more complex structural features, largely more steeply folded and more or less truncated buried anticlines, which have permitted the accumulation and concentration of oil and gas. This folding is different from that in mountain chains and is called the "Plains type 9f folding." It is characterized by "buried hills."
