New Quaternary Geologic Mapping in Bullitt and Hardin Counties, Kentucky

Grants and Contracts Details


This proposal is seeking funding to support new surficial geologic mapping in Kentucky, in an area prioritized by the Kentucky Geologic State Mapping Advisory Committee as needing detailed surficial geologic mapping to meet societal needs. The proposed area is situated in a geologically unique area that spans three physiographic provinces, and will also provide the opportunity to compare and contrast mechanisms of deposition, Pleistocene geomorphology, and hazard assessment. This proposal includes a one-year project intended to support the long-range goals identified by the SGMAC of completing mapping along the I-65 corridor south of Louisville Metro. For 2018-19, we are proposing to complete new surficial geologic maps for the Big Spring, Colesburg, Cravens, Flaherty, Fort Knox, Lebanon Junction, Pitts Point, Samuels, and Vine Grove 7.5-minute quadrangles in west-central Kentucky.
