Geomorphology and Soils InvestigationsWe map, investigate and sample soils, sediments and wetlands
GGI has completed geomorphic mapping and soil stratigraphic studies in support of numerous environmental, archeological, water rights, spring inventory, geologic mapping and paleontological investigations.
These projects include geomorphic mapping and analysis of sediment transport through canyons in the vicinity of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), evaluation of the geomorphic context and delineation of soil stratigraphic relationships for archaeological sites in northern and central NM, soils analyses for wetlands delineation and mitigation projects, slope stability and seismic hazard analyses, and stratigraphic analysis of Pleistocene fossil localities.
GGI has also collaborated in geomorphic and geologic mapping projects with LANL and New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources (NMBGMR), including mapping of the Valles Caldera National Preserve (Valle Toledo, Valle San Antonio, Bland Quadrangles) GGI is currently collaborating with NMBOG on state map projects in the Mount Taylor area (Lobo Springs Quadrangles).
