First glimpse of the unified surficial geologic map of Clark County

This map represents the results of our attempt to unify the surficial geology and geomorphology of Clark County as expressed in available digital data sources spanning most of the county. Much work remains to be done to fully unify the various sources, but this is a big step.

Soon we will develop a 'postable' figure showing our interpretations of the published data that were unified, thus explaining the colors on the map. In the example above, the bedrock is not shown (note that the dark green is vegetation indicated on the base map).
