The KGS landslide inventory provides the locations of known landslides and areas susceptible to debris flows. Various types of landslides are represented including slides, flows, rockfalls, and creep. The data are available as ArcGIS geodatabase feature classes. Landslide locations and associated attributes are compiled from Kentucky Geological Survey research, published maps, state and local government agencies, the public, and media reports. A confidence ranking system assigns a value to each feature. A description of the feature classes is here: https://kgs.uky.edu/kgsmap/helpfiles/landslide_help.shtm
The inventory viewed in a GIS with geology, soils, slope or other terrain-based data can serve as ...Read More
This data is from three landslides monitored in Kentucky between October 2015 and September 2020. The purpose was to capture and analyze subsurface hydrologic conditions within the landslides at different slope positions over time. The site descriptions, field methodology, data-acquisition techniques, and observations provide a general picture of soil moisture in hillslope soils. Data collected includes volumetric water content, soil water potential, bulk electrical conductivity, bulk dielectric permittivity, temperature. Water potential is the energy state of water in the soil, a determination of stress in the soil based on how water moves. Water potential can be described as the negative ...Read More
These contour lines detail the estimated depth of the base of fresh groundwater—i.e., deepest observed fresh water. These contours were created using the deepest domestic water well depths in each 11-digit HUC watershed of a 14-county study area in the Cumberland Plateau of eastern Kentucky.
StateMap 2020-2021: New Surficial Geologic Mapping along the I-65 Corridor in Hardin County, Kentucky
This dataset characterizes the types and distributions of surficial geologic materials in the Cecilia, Constantine, Howe Valley, and Sonora 7.5-minute quadrangles. The primary goal for this mapping project was to identify and map the spatial distribution and understand the mechanical and chemical properties of surficial geologic materials in a rapidly developing area of Kentucky. This new dataset will have immediate utility to a range of users in local, state, and Federal agencies that are working on applications that rely on accurate and detailed surficial geologic data for geotechnical planning, evaluation of water resources, and geologic hazard assessment (karst, landslide, radon)....Read More
New Surficial Geologic Mapping along the I-65 Corridor in Bullitt, Hardin, and Nelson Counties, Kentucky
This project presents new surficial geologic mapping that will address immediate societal needs and support new scientific discovery in an area of west-central Kentucky prioritized with the guidance of the Kentucky State Geological Mapping Advisory Committee (KSGMAC). The new mapping presented represents four new 1:24,000-scale (or greater) surficial geologic maps located along the actively developing I-65 corridor south of the Louisville metropolitan area. The study area is also situated in a geologically unique area that will provide an opportunity to examine relationships of surficial deposits to groundwater resources, geologic hazards (radon, sinkholes, and landslides), and Quaternary landscape evolution of the ...Read More
Hydrology Data for Edge of Field Monitoring in a Sinkhole Dominated Karst Landscape, The Homeplace on the Green River
These data are a combination of precipitation quantity, spring flow, spring chemistry, spring and stream field measurement data, and dye trace results for a USDA funded research project at The Homeplace on the Green River in Taylor County, KY.
