This report contains the results and analyses of stonecounts, roundness, and sphericity studies of 1894, 25 to 75 millimeter pebbles from Illinoian outwash terraces along the northern end of the Hocking River Valley, Ohio. It concludes that carefully selected lithologic categories may be the most useful indicators for the identification of these terraces, and that roundness determinations may have some potential value, while sphericity determinations appear to be useless for identification purposes.
