Abstract:Midwest Friends of the Pleistocene 26th Field Conference May 4-6, 1979 The purpose of this field conference is (1) to reexamine the classic Farm Creek Section, which has been studied by geologists for nearly 90 years and has been used by many workers as a type or reference section for several rock-, time-, and soi 1 -stratigraphic classifications of the Quaternary, (2) to examine details of the development of the Sangamon Soil under varying environmental conditions in its type region, (3) to consider some details of stratigraphic and compositional variations in the Wisconsinan loesses and their relation to Wisconsinan glaciation in Illinois, and (4) to outline some new ideas on the stratigraphy and duration of the Illinoian Stage in Illinois. The papers and interpretations of geologic sections in this guidebook represent a report on the status and development of these continuing investigations.
