Lying as it does near the border of the Iowan drift sheet, in hilly country deeply eroded by Cedar River, it might be expected that the city of Cedar Rapids would contain interesting exposures of Pleistocene deposits. Since any geological description of the region was published, the stripping of quarries, cutting of streets, etc., has led to the creation of many new exposures. Some of these will prove more or less temporary in their nature, and it is in the belief that no time should be lost in making permanent records of them, that the descriptions herein contained are here presented. Acknowledgments are due Doctor Gow for his many valuable suggestions and corrections in the writing of the paper.
