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 (Jorgenson and Signor, 1981), a major study that encompasses 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 groundwater 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 relationship among the primary geohydrologic units in the Ozark Plateaus province is discussed in Chapter A of this Hydrologic Investigations Atlas series. This chapter focuses on the Ozark aquifer, a geohydrologic unit within the Ozark Plateaus aquifer system underlying the Ozark Plateaus province.
