Kansas Geological Survey, Open-file Report 2010-13
Robert S. Sawin and Ronald R. West
KGS Open File Report 2010-13
This report is a supplemental reference to the Surficial Geology of Geary County, Kansas, map (M-122) (Sawin and West, 2010), and is a synthesis of the data control points and field notes used to construct the map.
The bedrock geology of Geary County was mapped in the field on U.S. Geological Survey topographic quadrangle maps at a scale of 1:24,000 (fig.1). Data control points used in mapping the bedrock geology are organized by quadrangle in this report. The locations of these control points are plotted on copies of the field maps in previous Kansas Geological Survey (KGS) open-file reports for Geary County (West and Sawin, 2005; West and Sawin, 2006; West and Sawin, 2007). The data control points in this report may be different from those reported in earlier open-file reports and therefore supersede those reports.
The stratigraphic names used herein are from Zeller (1968). Included in map M-122 is a stratigraphic rock column that depicts the vertical sequence, thickness, and lithologies of the geologic units. A short, generalized description of each geologic unit is also included. A west-east cross section shows the vertical relationship of the rock units.
