Measured Stratigraphic Section - Sample Kid : 5759


Dataset Reference Date


Measured By H.C. Wagner, 5/2/1952; Chert gravel - subangular chert pebbles ranging in size from 1/4 inch to 2 inches with a few subrounded to rounded sandstone pebbles. No gradation of pebbles is apparent but most frequent sizes are between 1/4 and 3/4 inch. Chert pebbles are grayish orange (10YR7/4) in color and a few had fossils in them (fusulinids and brachiopods). The sandstone pebbles are generally about light brown (5R5/6) and are very fine grained. The pebbles are held in a light brown (5R5/6) matrix of clay and silt with many scattered sand grains. The chert gravels sometimes make up the entire bed; in other places they occur as thin 1-5 inch lenticular bodies in a light brown (5YR5/6) clayey siltstone.,

The database contains a set of measured sections (precise measurements and descriptions of a cross section of an outcrop or roadcut) for selected counties in Kansas. The data is based on archived materials from the Kansas Geological Survey, with sections created from 1900's to 1950's. The graphic columns have been scanned or scanned and traced from the original copies, and the descriptions have been typed in. Current stratigraphic nomenclature may be different than that presented on these pages, and some of these outcrops may no longer exist or may not be accessible.
