The fundamental geologic unit used in the 1995 National Oil and Gas Assessment was the play, which is defined as a set of known or postulated oil and or gas accumulations sharing similar geologic, geographic, and temporal properties, such as source rock, migration pathways, timing, trapping mechanism, and hydrocarbon type. The geographic limit of each play was defined and mapped by the geologist responsible for each province. The play boundaries were defined geologically as the limits of the geologic elements that define the play, such as the limits of the reservoir rock, geologic structures, source rock, and seal lithologies. The only exceptions to this are plays that border the Federal-State water boundary. In...

The surficial geologic map of the Eastern and Central United Statesdepicts the areal distribution of surficial geologic deposits and othermaterials that accumulated or formed during the past 2+ million years,the period that includes all activities of the human species. Thesematerials are at the surface of the earth. They make up the "ground"on which we walk, the "dirt" in which we dig foundations, and the �soil�in which we grow crops. Most of our human activity is related in oneway or another to these surface materials that are referred tocollectively by many geologists as regolith, the mantle of fragmentaland generally unconsolidated material that overlies the bedrockfoundation of the continent. The map is based...

This digital map database consists of the ESRI ARC/INFO Version 7.0.2 coverages used to generate the plates in Professional Paper 1538-M (1994). Base-data is from 1:2,000,000-scale Digital Line Graph (DLG) data (roads, railroads, streams, water bodies, and international boundaries) and 1:100,000 scale DLG data (state and county boundaries).

The coverages were created using the gridded data available fromthis ftp site. Most of the gridded data for the United States is ata spacing of 0.1 degrees latitude and longitude. The higherresolution data available for California, Nevada, and part ofArizona and Utah were used for both the U.S. and Western U.S. maps.The gridded data for this area is at a spacing of 0.05 degreeslatitude and longitude.

This CD presents maps derived from a subset of the National Uranium Resource Evaluation(NURE) Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) data.Approxiamately 260,000 samples were analyzed in the continental U.S. and consisted ofsolid samples, including stream, lake, pond, spring, and playa sediments, and soils.Data for eleven elements were analyzed and included on this release of the NationalGeochemical Atlas CD: Na, Ti, Fe, Cu, Zn, As, Ce, Hf, Pb, Th, and U.The National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program of the Department of Energy (DOE) collecteda vast amount of chemical data on sediment, soil, and water samples from the United States in thelate 1970's and early 1980's. This element of the...

This CD-ROM contains a digital version of the Geologic Map of theUnited States, originally published at a scale of 1:2,500,000 (Kingand Beikman, 1974b). It excludes Alaska and Hawaii. In addition tothe graphical formats, the map key is included in ASCII text.A geographic information system (GIS) allows combining andoverlaying of layers for analysis of spatial relations not readilyapparent in the standard paper publication. This disc contains onlygeology. However, digital data on geology, geophysics, andgeochemistry can be combined to create useful derivative products--for example, see Phillips and others (1993).This CD-ROM contains a copy of the text and figures fromProfessional Paper 901 by King and Beikman (1974a)....

Debris flows, debris avalanches, mud flows and lahars arefast-moving landslides that occur in a wide variety of environmentsthroughout the world. They are particularly dangerous to life andproperty because they move quickly, destroy objects in their paths,and can strike with little warning. The purpose of this map is toshow where debris flows have occurred in the conterminous UnitedStates and where these slope movements might be expected in thefuture.
