During the past seven years the material resource investigations of the Department of Materials and Tests of the Iowa State Highway Commission have included frequent studies of the rock deposits of Madison County. Examination of the unpublished data in their files show that forty-four detailed sections, covering the whole range of the Missouri Series for that county, have been obtained. All of these sections have been taken by the writer or under his direction. There follows herewith a table giving the locations of the various points where detailed sections have been obtained, and following it, a General Section, giving the succession and character of the beds, and indicating the detailed sections in which each is represented.
