Major geologic structures in the Black Hills Hydrology Study study area.Entry ID: USGS_ofr00471_geostruc
Abstract: This data set was created as part of the Black Hills Hydrology Study (BHHS).
The BHHS is a long-term investigation that was initiated in 1990 as a
cooperative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the South Dakota
Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), and the West Dakota
Water Development District. West Dakota represents various local and county
cooperators. The ... purpose of the study is to assess the quantity, quality, and
distribution of surface and ground water in the Black Hills area of western
South Dakota (Driscoll, 1992). The study area includes parts of Butte, Custer,
Fall River, Lawrence, Meade, and Pennington counties in South Dakota.
This data set represents major geologic structures in the Black Hills Area,
This electronic report was subjected to the same review standard that applies
to all U.S. Geological Survey reports. Reviewers were asked to check the
topological consistency, tolerances, attribute frequencies and statistics,
projection, and geographic extent. The reviewers checked the metadata and
a_readme.1st files for completeness and accuracy.
