Measured Stratigraphic Section - Sample Kid : 6615


Dataset Reference Date


Measured By Newell; To all apearances the topmost remnant of a heavy limestone conglomerate rises above (not over 3 or 4 feet) above the base of the Plattsburg. The cg consists of coarse gritty quartz sandstone with lenses of limestone cg with pebbles and cobbles of limestone up to 2 or 3 inches in diameter. It seems incredible to doubt from the field relations that the cg is younger than Plattsburg but at no place does it definitely overlie Plattsburg nor does it underlie it. A continuation of the same kind of cg lies in Iola or Cottage Grove NE of Earlton (See map). Cg at C.S. side 30-28-17,

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.
