No science, perhaps, is so backward as Geology in the genetic plan of its classification, its taxonomic nomenclature, or its methods of terranal correlation. Although in Europe considerable progress is made in methodical systems of geological arrangement and terminology, in this country laissez faire practice continues to prevail to such appalling extent that clear classificatory concept and perspicacious correlation are almost impossible even over moderate regional areas. How Iowa might look in methodical scheme of geological classification is presented in diagram and in tabular form. The local outlines are also developed into world-wide uniformity.
