The Bombarded 38' Parallel

A 1,200-mile long east-west zone, containing unusual geologic features, has been recognized in the eastern half of the United States for over 100 years. It coincides, in a general way, with the 38° parallel. There are as many opinions on the origin of the features as there are geologists. Most of the features are circular or oval in form, and some are concealed by younger rocks. They are found in 8 states, from Kansas east to Virginia.
