We dont have a detailed geologic map
for even one-third of the United States, yet it lays the foundation for minimizing risks from natural hazards and is the linchpin to reducing our nations dependence on foreign minerals, Murkowski said.
This study is using remote sensing to distinguish different geologic units and lithologies found in this area to update the geologic map
of this region.
Washington, Mar 20 ( ANI ): Over 400 years after Galileo's discovery of Io, the innermost of Jupiter's largest moons, researchers have unveiled the first complete global geologic map
of the Jovian satellite.
For geologist Brian Tucholke, creating a new Geologic Map
of North America was a 23-year adventure.
A set of powerful computer-assisted decision-support tools will be created by combining three-dimensional geologic map
information with economic, demographic and other societal data, in a system that provides compelling graphic representations of the consequences of 'what-if' scenarios involving public-policy decisions," the report says.
We produced (1) two three-dimensional maps showing bedrock topography, surface topography, and approximate placement of the Niagara Escarpment (Figures 2 and 3); (2) a new geologic map
(Figure 4) showing bedrock structure and stratigraphy for comparison with Reed and Daniels's 1987 bedrock geologic map
(Figure 5); and (3) a set of three cross sections showing bedrock stratigraphy, structure, and topography (Figures 6-8).
A DIGITAL REGIONAL GEOLOGIC MAP
OF THE NORTHERN ALABAMA PIEDMONT CONSTRUCTED WITH GIS.
A geologic map
of the Ruby/Poorman area will be released in the near future.
TopoView was created by the National Geologic Map
Database project, in support of topographic mapping program managed by the National Geospatial Program.
By combining the distribution of weakened rocks with geologic maps
that show the steepness of the terrain, they constructed a computer model of the mountain.
VGS products are surficial and bedrock geologic maps
, plus applied maps used by towns, government agencies and consultants to address issues such as: radioactivity in groundwater, groundwater recharge potential and to mitigate landslide and rockfall hazards.
