Collection of Thin Sections and Polished Sections from Iowa

Summary

This collection includes approximately 4,000 thin sections of rock units from across the state. There are significant Iowa-based thesis/dissertation and paleontological components. The collection includes approximately 1,200 slides for clay mineralogy of Quaternary units. The collection requires a proper database. We are hoping to incorporate into GeoSam, our overall geologic database and web outlet (https://www.iihr.uiowa.edu/igs/geosam/home).
