Abstract

An investigation of the geohydrologic system in the Ozark Plateaus province (index map and Fenneman, 1938) has been made as part of the Central Midwest Regional Aquifer System Analysis (Jorgensen and Signor, 1981), a major study of the regional aquifer system in parts of 10 States. The study is one of several by the U.S. Geological Survey that are designed to increase knowledge of the flow regime and geohydrologic properties of regional aquifer systems in the United States. Because a large quantity of fresh ground water is available in aquifers underlying the Ozark Plateaus province, a subregional project has been established to study the geohydrologic units of this area in more detail than is practical in the regional study. The stratigraphic and geologic relationships among the primary geohydrologic units in and adjacent to the Ozark Plateaus is depicted in this atlas (Chapter A). This is the first of a series of chapters (A-H) that includes maps of the altitude of the top, thickness, potentiometric surface, and percentage-of-shale content of individual geohydrologic units.
