FEDMAP Project Summary

Central Region State/USGS Cooperative Geologic Mapping: Western Colorado I-70 Corridor

Description:

This project provided multipurpose digital 1:24,000-scale geologic maps along the rapidly growing population of the I-70 corridor from the Continental Divide to west of Grand Junction. Numerous mountain range scale landslides, geologically induced salt dissolution and related collapse and unstable surficial units create geologic hazards and environmental problems. This salt influx into the Colorado River has become an international issue at the Mexican border.

Study Area:

Colorado

Cooperators/Collaborators/Clients:

Colorado Division of Wildlife, Colorado Geological Survey, Colorado National Monument, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, Mesa State College (CO), U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S.D.A./ Forest Service, University of Northern Colorado, White River National Forest (CO)

Project Status:

Past NCGMP Funding

Project Duration:

1995-2000

Duration of NCGMP Funding:

1995-2000
