The Paleozoic lithostratigraphic nomenclature shown in the column was compiled from information obtained from several sources-outcrops, deep cores, and theses on the geology of southeastern Minnesota. It is a revision of the Paleozoic stratigraphic column published in 1956 (Schwartz, 1956). The purpose of this discussion is to describe the Paleozoic strata of southeastern Minnesota in terms of the revised nomenclature and to call attention to related post-1956 publications and other source materials.
