Basic Information
Author: Slucher, E. R., Swinford, E.M., Larsen, G.E.
Description:The Bedrock Geologic Map of Ohio, map BG-1 version 6.0, is based on 788 geologic 7.5-minute quadrangle maps that were produced between 1985 and 1997. This map is the first statewide bedrock-geology map compiled by the Ohio Geological Survey since 1920 and the first to portray the bedrock geology that exists beneath the extensive deposits of Quaternary sediments that cover much of Ohio. For the first time, a statewide overview of the geologic attributes of individual maps units, the contribution of geology to the development of Ohio, and potential geological hazards are presented. The map is available as a PDF for download, a hard copy printed map (order from ODNR), or a digital map on CD-ROM (order from ODNR). This resource was provided by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological Survey and made available for distribution through the National Geothermal Data System.
