Abstract

Soap Creek Watershed drains approximately 65,590 hectares (162,000 acres) of the Des Moines River Basin in the Southern Iowa Drift Plain landform region of southeastern Iowa. Detailed investigations of the late Wisconsinan and Holocene alluvial stratigraphic record in portions of the watershed were conducted in order to develop a landscape evolution model for the area. The purpose of the model was to assist archaeologists and planners in developing effective means for locating and evaluating the archaeological record preserved in the valley landscape. The present valley landscape is a mosaic of surfaces and underlying deposits of varying age and origin.
