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...

This dataset is a polygon coverage of minable thickness for the Pond Creek coal zone in Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia. The coverage was created by gridding 4,391 points and contouring the grid with 1.17-ft intervals. The polygons have elevation values halfway between the bounding contour arc values. This dataset honors data submitted for the asessment from the Kentucky Geological Survey; therefore contour lines may not match across State lines (see Process Steps). This map 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 Middle...

This dataset is a polygon coverage of the mined areas of the Pocahontas No. 3 coal bed. The polygons are subdivided into 3 categories. These categories are areas where resources are mined underground, areas where resources are mined on the surface, and areas where resources are not mined. This map 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 Pocahontas No. 3 coal bed occurs within the Pocahontas Formation (Lower Pennsylvanian) and underlies all or parts of Wyoming, McDowell, Raleigh, Summers, Mercer, Greenbrier, Logan, and Mingo...

This dataset represents the thickness of the potentially minable Fire Clay coal benches in Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky. The coal zone is known by other names, depending upon locale. The data were comprised of values from Kentucky in EXCEL format, data searched from the USGS' NCRDS database for Virginia and entered into StratiFact, and a StratiFact database obtained from the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES). Point data were gridded, the grid contoured and imported to ARC/INFO as polygons. The Kentucky portion was replaced by a polygonal thickness coverage obtained from the Kentucky Geological Survey that had been manually contoured, therefore State line discrepancies are to be expected....

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 dataset is a polygon coverage of structure contours (elevation) for the Pond Creek coal zone in Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia. The surface was created by gridding information from 137,355 points and contouring the grid into 100-ft intervals. Many of the points were derived from existing structure contoure maps obtained from Kentucky and West Virgina. In Virginia, data were searched from the StratiFact database created from the National Coal Resource Data System (NCRDS). Data from specific quadrangles in the StratiFact database from the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey were also searched. The grid was created in EarthVision, was contoured and imported to ARC/INFO as polygons using an AML....

The U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, the Arkansas Geological Commission, and the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has monitored water levels in the Sparta Sand of Claiborne Group and Memphis Sand of Claiborne Group since the 1920's. Ground-water withdrawals have increased while water levels have declined since monitoring was initiated. This report has been produced to describe ground-water levels in the aquifers in the Sparta Sand and Memphis Sand and provide information for the management of this valuable resource. The 2005 potentiometric-surface map of the aquifers in the Sparta Sand and Memphis Sand was constructed using water-level data...

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...

The Sparta aquifer is used in 15 parishes in north-central Louisiana, primarily for public supply and industrial purposes. Of those parishes, eight (Bienville, Claiborne, Jackson, Lincoln, Ouachita, Union, Webster, and Winn) rely on the Sparta aquifer as their principal source of groundwater. In 2010, withdrawals from the Sparta aquifer in Louisiana totaled 63.11 million gallons per day (Mgal/d), a reduction of more than 11 percent from 1995, when the highest rate of withdrawals (71.32 Mgal/d) from the Sparta aquifer were documented. The Sparta aquifer provides water for a variety of purposes which include public supply (34.61 Mgal/d), industrial (25.60 Mgal/d), rural domestic (1.50 Mgal/d), and various agricultural...
