Abstract

This atlas is one of several reports that are products of an analysis of regional aquifer systems in the Great Basin of Nevada, Utah, and adjacent States.  The Geological Survey program of regional aquifer-system analyses is a nationwide study of ground-water systems on a regional scale.  The program is intended to establish a framework of geologic, hydrologic, and geochemical information for each regional aquifer system studied.  As of 1985, studies have been started or completed in 19 areas.  The scope of the Great Basin Regional Aquifer-System Analysis is outlined by Harrill and others (1983).  The purpose of this report is to bring the findings of several studies together into a map report that discusses regional aspects of ground-water flow in the Great Basin, delineates the major ground-water flow systems, and briefly describes some of their characteristics.

This atlas is Chapter C of a three-part series. Chapter A delineates and describes hydrogeologic units in the Great Basin region, and Chapter B shows the generalized distribution of hydraulic potential.
