Geology of the Mid-Atlantic Corridor (GOMAC)

Description:

This project conducted bedrock and surficial geologic mapping in the mid-Atlantic urban corridor, a region of continuous urban growth for 300 years. Efforts focused on providing a comprehensive geologic framework that could be used as a foundation for regional planning efforts. The project generated numerous geologic maps both at 1:24,000 and 1:100,000 scales.
