Abstract

This map was prepared as a collaborative effort with the Missouri Division of Geology and Land Survey, the Kansas Geological Survey, and the Nebraska Conservation and Survey Division. 

Map units and preliminary contacts between units were identified using stereoscopic pairs of high altitude, false color infrared, aerial photographs. Contacts were drawn on twelve USGS 7.5-minute topographic maps, and were checked in the field. U.S. Department of Agriculture Soil Survey maps at a scale of 1:62,500 for Buchanan County, Andrew County, Platte County, and Doniphan County were used to provide a general overview of the soils of the area. A U.S. Geological Survey map at a scale of 1:24,000 showing the geohydrology of Doniphan County, Kansas; soil surveys at a scale of 1:24,000 for Buchanan County, Andrew County, and Platte County; and soil survey at a scale of 1:20,000 for Doniphan were used to corroborate map contacts and field observations.
