Generalized Block Diagram of the Inner Bluegrass Karst

James C. Currens
Abstract: Karst occurs where limestone or other soluble bedrock is near the earth's surface, and fractures in the rock become enlarged when the rock dissolves. Sinkholes and sinking streams are two surface features that indicate karst development. In karst areas most rainfall sinks underground, resulting in fewer streams flowing on the surface than in non-karst settings. Instead of flowing on the surface, the water flows underground through caves, sometimes reemerging at karst windows, then sinks...

Mineral and Fuel Resources Map of Kentucky

Warren H. Anderson &
Abstract: The production of minerals and fuels in Kentucky is a multibillion dollar industry. Historically, coal, oil, natural gas, limestone, sand and gravel, clay, fluorite, barite, lead, iron, phosphate, zinc, and brines have been produced in the state. These resources have greatly influenced the development of Kentucky by providing raw materials for the early settlers who settled the state and for current industrial and economic development. Electrical power for homes, businesses, and factories; materials for...

Generalized Geologic Map for Land-Use Planning: Madison County, Kentucky

Bart Davidson & Daniel I. Carey
Abstract: This map is not intended to be used for selecting individual sites. Its purpose is to inform land-use planners, government officials, and the public in a general way about geologic bedrock conditions that affect the selection of sites for various purposes. The properties of thick soils may supercede those of the underlying bedrock and should be considered on a site-to-site basis. At any site, it is important to understand the characteristics of both the...

Coal Resources of the Fire Clay Coal Zone in Eastern Kentucky

Ernest E. Thacker, Gerald A. Weisenfluh, Jeffery A. Esterle, Stephen F. Greb & John K. Hiett
Abstract: This chart is one of a series that shows the regional characteristics of the Fire Clay coal zone. The maps and charts were prepared as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Coal Assessment Program, which compiles regional maps and databases that provide a comprehensive assessment of the most important coal beds in the nation. Within this coal zone, the Fire Clay coal is the most economically important bed and is one of the...

Mapped Karst Groundwater Basins in the Lexington 30 x 60 Minute Quadrangle

James C. Currens, Randall L. Paylor & Joseph A. Ray
Abstract: This map shows karst groundwater basins in the Lexington quadrangle, determined primarily by groundwater tracer studies. It can be used to quickly identify the groundwater basins and springs to which a site may drain. Major springs and the relative size of their catchment areas can be evaluated for potential as water supplies. The map also serves as a geographic index to literature on karst groundwater in the area.

Generalized Geologic Bedrock Conditions as Related to Solid-Waste Landfills in Kentucky

Martin C. Noger
Abstract: This map is not intended to be used for selecting individual landfill sites. Its purpose is to inform land-use planners, government officials, and the public in a general way about geologic bedrock conditions throughout the state that affect the selection of solid-waste disposal sites.

Mapped Karst Ground-Water Basins in the Bowling Green 30 x 60 Minute Quadrangle

Joseph A. Ray & James C. Currens
Abstract: This map shows karst ground-water basins in the Bowling Green quadrangle, determined primarily by ground-water tracer studies.

The map also serves as a geographic index to literature on karst ground water in the area.

Coal Resources of the Springfield Coal Bed in Western Kentucky

, Robert E. Andrews & John K. Hiett
Abstract: Historically, the Springfield (Western Kentucky No. 9) coal bed has been the leading source of production in the Western Kentucky Coal Field. The Springfield coal is known for its lateral continuity in terms of both thickness and coal quality. It is estimated to have the largest original and remaining resource in the Western Kentucky Coal Field (Greb and others, 1992).
