Sediment samples from Wisconsin

Summary

Sediment samples are splits from samples processed for textural analysis, geochemistry, color, and magnetic susceptibility. These are a variety of sediment samples, including mostly subsurface samples, collected in the course of Quaternary geology investigations at the UW-Madison Department of Geology and Geophysics and at the Wisconsin Geological Survey. These samples were transferred to the WGNHS in the winter of 2009-2010. They constitute the TillPro sub-collection of sediment samples in Geobase, our sample tracking system. There are more than 5,000 samples in this collection.
