Abstract

Research on cyclic sedimentation in the Pennsylvanian System of the United States began with Udden (1912), who delineated cyclic patterns in Pennsylvanian strata in the Eastern Interior Basin (Illinois, U.S.A.). Udden described a stratigraphic succession associated with four upper Middle Pennsylvanian (Desmoinesian Stage) coal beds in western Illinois where similar lithologic sequences were repeated above each coal bed. The stratigraphic succession, as described by Udden, consists of the following lithologies:
