Summary

This data set is a polygon coverage created in ARC/INFO that represents the generalized thickness of the Madison Limestone and Englewood Formation, Black Hills, South Dakota. The thickness of the Madison Limestone and Englewood Formation was determined by substracting the elevation of the top of the Deadwood Formation from the elevation of the top of the Madison Limestone. The elevations for the tops of the formations were determined from geologic logs for wells drilled as of 1998. The thickness coverage contains polygons that have single integer values representing a range of thickness.

Purpose

This data set was created as part of the Black Hills Hydrology Study (BHHS). The BHHS is a long-term investigation that was initiated in 1990 as a cooperative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), and the West Dakota Water Development District. West Dakota represents various local and county cooperators. The purpose of the study is to assess the quantity, quality, and distribution of surface and ground water in the Black Hills area of western South Dakota (Driscoll, 1992). The study area includes parts of Butte, Custer, Fall River, Lawrence, Meade, and Pennington counties in South Dakota.
