Summary

This digital data set consists of boundaries for areas of little or no saturated thickness within the High Plains aquifer in the central United States. The High Plains aquifer extends from south of 32 degrees to almost 44 degrees north latitude and from 96 degrees 30 minutes to 106 degrees west longitude. The outcrop area covers 174,000 square miles and is present in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming. This digital data set was created by digitizing the areas of little or no saturated thickness from a 1:1,000,000-scale base map created by the U.S. Geological Survey High Plains Regional Aquifer-Systems Analysis (RASA) project (Gutentag, E.D., Heimes, F.J., Krothe, N.C., Luckey, R.R., and [...]
