No obvious damage to the cover, with the dust jacket (if applicable Seller Rating: % positive.   Nearly all students of Michigan geology make a pilgrimage to Grand Ledge at some point in their careers. Good exposures of sedimentary rocks are rare in the Lower Peninsula. Not only are the rocks well exposed but they offer an opportunity to test your skills in identifying a variety of sandstones, some shale and limestone, and even 2 coal.

DEVONIAN ROCKS IN OHIO Devonian rocks crop out in two areas in Ohio. They are best exposed in a mile-wide, north-south-oriented belt in the central part of the state. At its northern terminus, the outcrop belt narrows and swings eastward along the southern shore of Lake Size: KB.

    The Michigan basin contains about , cubic miles of sedimentary rocks of which about 80 per cent is Cambrian, Ordovician, and Silurian in age, and most of the remainder Devonian in age. Lithologically, carbonate rocks constitute 47 per cent of the sedimentary rocks of the basin, 12 per cent being evaporites, and the remaining 41 per cent. Precambrian and Cambrian sandstones in this area likely generate lower radon levels than adjacent carbonate rocks. The northern part of the Lower Peninsula that is underlain by the Antrim black shale and by glacial deposits derived from the Antrim Shale has the potential to .

Open Library is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published. The Cambrian sandstones of northern Michigan by W. Kenneth Hamblin, edition, in EnglishCited by: Jacobsville Sandstone is a red sandstone formation, marked with light-colored streaks and spots, primarily found in northern Upper Michigan, portions of Ontario, and under much of Lake d for its durability and aesthetics, the sandstone was used as an architectural building stone both locally and around the United y: United States, Canada.

These rock formations, consisting largely of shales, limestones, and sandstones, were deposited on the bottom of ancient seas that covered Michigan on and off for millions of years.

The basin is estimated to be ab ft (4, m) thick, and its rocks rest on the top of a very old Precambrian surface. The Jordan Formation (also classified as the Jordan Sandstone or the Jordan Member of the Trempealeau Formation) is a siliciclastic sedimentary rock unit identified in Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa.

Named for distinctive outcrops in the Minnesota River Valley near the town of Jordan, it extends throughout the Iowa Shelf and eastward over the Wisconsin Arch and Lincoln Named for: Jordan, Minnesota.

To complete the study of the Lake Superior sandstones, a similar study on the older Freda sandstones of western Keweenaw Peninsula is in progress. The report of this study with Publication 51 will fill a long-discussed gap in.

The distribution of Cambrian conglomerates and sandstones show clearly that the present topography closely parallels that of Cambrian time. That is, the ancient landscape is being exhumed so that the present valleys between the present hills are underlain by Cambrian conglomerate derived from erosion of those hills (Fig.

Shallow-dipping Paleozoic sedimentary rocks overlie the Pre- cambrian sequence and crop out in the eastern part of the Study Area.

Here Cambrian and Ordovician sedimentary forma- tions dip gently in a southeasterly direction to form the northwesterly rim of the Michigan Basin. These rocks are mainly sandstones, dolomites, shales, and limestones.

The Late Cambrian Munising Formation of northern Michigan is an exception. Both conglomerate and shale are relatively more common here than in most similar cratonic sandstones, apparently because of an important fluvial influence.

One of the interesting features of the Michigan coast is the ‘Pictured Rocks’ on the northern coast of the northern peninsula, where the Cambrian sandstones are carved by the action of the water into fantastic shapes—arches, towers, castles, etc.
