Abstract

The purpose of this project is to conduct a combined geologic field and laboratory study on the exposed sedimentary rocks at the Clifty Creek Natural Preserve, South-Central Missouri in order to interpret their stratigraphy, sedimentation, and environment of deposition. Project includes field measurements, stratigraphic descriptions, and hand samples and thin section descriptions. These observations results will help to identify the stratigraphic relationships between the rock units as well as their sedimentary primary structures. The data gathered from the field will be used to interpret a depositional model for the area.
