Geologic quadrangle mapping in Arizona

Since 1994, AZGS has participated in the STATEMAP component of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program run by the USGS. AZGS puts matching funds for competitive federal money to map 1:24,000 quadrangles and compile 1:100,000 geologic maps.

Under the direction of Senior Geologist Jon Spencer, and guidance from the Arizona State Mapping Advisory Council, we have focused on maps in the Phoenix - Tucson corridor (blue quads in map at right). This year we are mapping in the Kingman, Prescott, and Yuma areas.
