Summary

This data release provides digital flight line data for a high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey over Charleston, South Carolina and the surrounding region. These data were collected to better understand earthquake hazards in the Charleston seismic zone by imaging structural features in the crystalline basement and to image heavy mineral sands containing titanium, zirconium, and rare earth elements using radiometric data (gamma spectrometry), which is sensitive to thorium in monazite. This survey represents a collaborative effort by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program, Mineral Resources Program, National Cooperative Mapping Program, and Earth Mapping Resource Initiative (Earth MRI) effort.
