GEOL Lab 6 Data
- Here is the entire map as a pdf (Pampeyan, 1989).
- Here are the GIS data in a zip file from this geologic map (Pampeyan, 1989).
Here is a a portion of the geological map of the region that we are mapping. We are mapping erosional and depositional landforms. This map is a geologic map, so does not typically show the landforms because geologic maps typically show the bedrock.
