Abstract

The Baraboo Quartzite contains numerous well-preserved sedimentary structures that enable interpretation of environments of deposition. Included are various types of cross-stratification, reactivation surfaces, and tidal bedding. The bulk of the Baraboo was deposited under tidal influence. The remainder represents deposition in a braided stream system. The origin of the tremendous volume of quartz sand remains somewhat unknown.
