This fault marks the place where Piedmont metamorphic rocks were shoved westward over sedimentary rock layers of the Valley and Ridge, probably due to the collision of Gondwana with North America near the end of the Paleozoic era.

Schenck1, LeeAnn Srogi2 University of Delaware Newark, Delaware 1Delaware Geological Survey 2West Chester University. The Geology of Pennsylvania consists of six distinct physiographic provinces, three of which are subdivided into different sections.

Each province has its own economic advantages and geologic hazards and plays an important role in shaping everyday life in the state. They are: (listed from the southeast corner to the northwest corner) the Atlantic Coastal Plain Province, the Piedmont.

Bureau of Geological Survey. The DCNR Bureau of Geological Survey, also known as the Pennsylvania Geological Survey, is a good place to start an inquiry into the geology of Pennsylvania.

Survey geologists: Research the state’s geologic resources and topography; Map the surface and underground rocks and geologic structures across the state. Despite the reliance on groundwater by approximately million rural Pennsylvania residents, publicly available data to characterize the quality of private well water are limited.

As part of a regional effort to characterize groundwater in rural areas of Pennsylvania, samples from 54 domestic wells in Clinton County were collected and analyzed.

Geological Survey (USGS) began to implement a full-scale National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) program. The three major objectives of the NAWQA program are to provide a consistent description of current water-quality conditions for a large part of the Nation's water resources, define long-term trends in water quality, and identify, describe, and explain the major factors.

OF PENNSYLVANIA By Debra S. Knopman ABSTRACT A preliminary classification of the water-yielding potential of hydrogeologic units in the Piedmont and Valley and Ridge provinces of Pennsylvania is based on a set of physical factors readily available in the U.S. Geological Survey data base.

Others, such as Fred Werkheiser of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, who first introduced me to this fascinating subject, have been at this much longer.

The field has a small but enthusiastic group of researchers, most of whom regularly post photographs and commentaries of what they have found on. Any geologic record from that interval has been erased by erosion, leaving only the unconformity.

These materials and the structures that deform them provide the geologic framework for investigations of geologic hazards and ground-water recharge and subsurface flow. Geologic information contained in the Yucaipa database is general-purpose data that is applicable to land-related investigations in the earth and biological sciences.

Two connected rift basins, the Gettysburg and Newark Basins, form lowlands in the Appalachian/Piedmont region (Figure ). The basins begin at the southeastern tip of New York and continue through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. The basins exist because of the rifting of Pangea during the Triassic and Jurassic.
