New Circulars on Aggregates and the Dakota Aquifer
The need for additional sources of water in central and western Kansas
has sparked interest in the Dakota aquifer, a source of ground water found
in the western two-thirds of Kansas. The Dakota Aquifer System in
Kansas answers questions about water quality and the underground
movement of water in the Dakota aquifer. Written by Allen Macfarlane,
Geohydrology Section, Public
Information Circular 7 summarizes the results of an eight-year study
of the Dakota aquifer by the KGS.
Copies of either of these public information circulars can be obtained
free of charge by contacting Publications
Sales at the Survey.
Topographic Atlas of Kansas
The maps also contain Global Positioning System (GPS) users’ information.
GPS refers to a satellite navigational system that provides latitude and
longitude coordinates to a hand-held receiver.
Copies of the Kansas Atlas & Gazetteer are available from
the KGS. The cost of the atlas is $16.95 plus tax, handling, and shipping.
Kansas Land Cover Map
Drawn at a scale of 1:750,000 (one inch on the map represents about 12
miles), the map measures about 25 inches by 38 inches. Copies of the new
map are available from the KGS for $11.00 plus tax, handling, and shipping.

Schmitt was a member of the Apollo 17 crew that visited the moon in 1972. He came to the Survey and the University of Kansas in April to deliver a lecture on lunar geology to Survey staff and to the scientific society Sigma Xi.
