The U.S. Geological Survey has recently measured and sampled the Phosphoria formation at many localities in Idaho and other western states. These data will not be fully synthesized and analyzed for several years, but segments of the data, accompanied by little or no interpretation, are published as preliminary reports as they are assembled. This report, which contains abstracts of the sections measured in southeastern Idaho (fig. 1), is one of this series and is the sixth report of data gathered in Idaho; it includes the data gathered in Idaho during 1950 and 1951. The field and laboratory procedures adopted in these investigations are described in a previous report (McKelvey and others, 1953a).
Many people have taken part in this investigation. E. R. Cressman, F. D. Frieske, R. A. Gulbrandsen, H. W. Peirce, J. A. Peterson, B. K. Replogle, and M. A. Warner participated in the description of the strata and the collection of samples referred to in this report. Crushing and splitting of samples in the field were done by T. K. Rigby. The laboratory preparation of samples for chemical analysis was done in Denver, Colo., under the direction of W. P. Huleatt.
