The Quaternary Geologic Map of the Lake Erie 4� x 6� Quadranglewas mapped as part of the Quaternary Geologic Atlas of the United States.The atlas was begun as an effort to depict the areal distribution ofsurficial geologic deposits and other materials that accumulated orformed during the past 2+ million years, the period that includes allactivities of the human species. These materials are at the surface ofthe earth. They make up the "ground" on which we walk, the "dirt" inwhich we dig foundations, and the "soil" in which we grow crops. Mostof our human activity is related in one way or another to these surfacematerials that are referred to collectively by many geologists asregolith, the mantle of fragmental and...

This dataset is a polygon coverage of the resource areas of the Lower Kittanning coal zone. The polygons are subdivided into 2 categories: resource areas inside the outcrop, and areas either too thin, outside the outcrop, or beyond data collection limits. The coal zone must contain at least 14 inches of coal to be a resource. This spatial data set of the Lower Kittanning coal bed and known mined areas is one of many Geographic Information System (GIS) products of the National Coal Assessment that is being conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with State geological surveys and other Federal and State agencies. The Lower Kittanning coal bed is an important economic coal in the northern part of the...

The Pittsburgh coal bed is composed of regionally persistent divisions- a roof division (coals and shales) and a lower division, referred to as the "main bench". This dataset is a polygon coverage of the elevation of the top of the Pittsburgh Coal bed main bench, in feet above MSL. It was produced by gridding (producing 300 meter cells) 7,101 point-source data mainly from the National Coal Resources Data System (NCRDS) of the USGS, using ISM (Version 7.1) software. The grid was subsequently contoured in 50-ft intervals and imported to ARC/INFO. The elev_st item for each polygon reflects a value halfway between the bounding contour lines. Coverage name: c9024st (024 is the bed code assigned to the Pittsburgh Coal...

This spatial dataset of the Upper Freeport coal bed is one of many Geographic Information System (GIS) products of the National Coal Resource Assessment that is being conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with State geological surveys and other Federal and State agencies. The Upper Freeport coal bed is an important economic coal in the northern part of the Appalachian Basin and is of additional importance because it occurs stratigraphically at the boundary between the Middle Pennsylvanian Allegheny and Upper Pennsylvanian Conemaugh Groups throughout most of the Appalachian foreland basin in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland. The top of the Allegheny Group is defined as the top of the...
