Description

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).
