Abstract

The AA. investigated the alluvial stratigraphy, soils, and geomorphology along a section of the lower Little Cedar River to aid in understanding the processes forming this landform region. They used terrace- and floodplain surface height above the Little Cedar River, soil development, sedimentological characteristics, and stone lines to distinguish alluvial units and landforms. Three Pleistocene surfaces were mapped in the valley, including two terraces and an erosion footslope. Holocene alluvial units identified include three terraces and the modern floodplain. Elsewhere in the Midwest, these units have been described as the Deforest Formation
