Abstract

The lithologic logs described in this open-file report are from holes augered in the South Carolina Low Country in parts of Charleston, Dorchester, and Colleton Counties from 1998 through 2010. Lithologic units described here include not only surficial Pleistocene units but also subsurface stratigraphic units ranging as far back in age as late Eocene. This region comprises the southernmost and westernmost portions of the area included in the 1:100,000 Charleston region geologic map, which lies east of 80°30′ west and south of 33°15′ north. Logs of the remainder of that map area were published prior to the release of that map. The present report completes the lithologic log record from which the 1:100,000 Charleston region geologic map largely was compiled.
