Till over ice-contact deposits: Consist of poorly
sorted sand and gravel; layers of silty sand to
cobble gravel; little to no shale; deposited be
meltwater flowing on, under, or adjacent to the
ice.
Ice-walled lake deposits: Lacustrine sediment
consisting of predominantly very fine- to mediumgrained sand. Interpreted to have been deposited
in a lake within stagnant ice. As the ice melted,
the lake sediment remained as a high plateau on
the landscape.

Till/sand complex: Mixture of sediments
including till, ice-contact sand and gravel,
and minor lacustrine deposits
Glacial lake deposits: Lacustrine
sediment consisting of very fine- to
medium-grained sand; no gravel. In
places the fine-grained sand has been
sculpted by wind to form dunes.
gc
gl
Till- Unsorted sediment consisting of pebbles
(abundant, cobbles (common), and boulders
(rare) in a loamy matrix; pockets of silt,
sand,and gravel in places.
Alluvium – terrace deposits: Fluvial sediments
laid down during early, high stages of the
Mississippi River and preserved as terraces
above the modern floodplain. Predominantly
medium – to coarse-grained sand with up to
40 percent gravel.

Alluvium – floodplain deposits: River-channel, overbank,
and slackwater sediments consisting predominantly
medium- to coarse-grained sand; interbedded with sandy
loam to silt loam; layers of sand and gravel. Organic
debris may be disseminated in the sediments and/or
form discrete peat beds.
