Abstract

The lower measures of the Iowa-Missouri coal field consist of a series of sandstones, shales, fire clays and coal beds, which have been found to interlock in a characteristically irregular manner. The different individual beds have, with rare exceptions, only a limited extent, and frequently grade into each other in a mariner making their stratigraphy quite complex. This variability has been recognized by many workers and has recently been elaborated so fully that only a reference is necessary in this connection.
