Abstract

The study area was confined to the Pennsylvanian rocks in the vicinity of the Mayflower Residence Hall of Iowa City, Iowa. The goals of this study were to 1. Map the Pennsylvanian units present in the area and describe their lithologies. 2. Determine the mineralogy, diagenesis, and depositional environment of these lithologies. 3. Attempt to determine the stratagraphic relationships between these sandstones and the standard Pennsylvanian section in the Midcontinent. Previous investigations in this area on these rocks have been distinguished but few.
