Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if clear relationships could be found among magnetic susceptibility, (MS), mineral zones and field observations, so that a more practical, and more geographically encompassing system for stratigraphic division of the Peoria Silt might be developed. The potential use of MS as a paleoclimate indicator by correlation to the marine oxygen isotope record is also addressed. The additional loess compositional data and field observations presented in this study build upon preexisting loess stratigraphic models, contribute to understanding the origin of the MS signal
