Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Beaver Creek Sand Member is a sand and gravel deposit underlying the Argyle and Nimtz Till Members in central Boone County and east-central Winnebago County. It overlies the Glasford Formation and is the oldest member of the Winnebago Formation. The formal name derives from Beaver Creek in Boone County, Illinois. We define the Beaver Creek and discuss its stratigraphic relationships with other deposits in central-northern Illinois. -from Authors
