Geologic Mapping And InvestigationsWe map bedrock geology, surficial deposits, geologic structures and compile geologic cross sections
Geologic mapping plays an important role in many geologic, hydrologic, and environmental projects. Preparation of detailed geologic maps allows the construction of geologic and hydrogeologic cross-sections, which are used to make inferences about subsurface geologic/hydrologic conditions. Depending on the nature of the project, GGI staff design a mapping program that addresses specific questions pertinent to the investigation, as well as general information that will be useful to the overall investigation.
