Abstract

Apex Natural Arch located in northeastern Christian County, Kentucky, is the result of surface water infiltration along parallel joints, basal erosion along a weaker section of the outcrop extending to existing joints, removal of basal support, and collapse of sandstone slabs. The arch is formally named here for the village of Apex, Kentucky.
