Abstract

Reviews 20 years of stratigraphic information generated through studies of the glacial deposits of northern Illinois and presents a revised stratigraphic classification for deposits older than the Woodfordian (Wisconsinan) drift. We introduce formal nomenclature to facilitate communication and to update chronostratigraphic and lithostratigraphic concepts. -from Authors
