Abstract

The principal mission of the U. S. Geological Survey, Water Resources Division, in Kansas is to investigate the occurrence, quantity, quality, distribution, and movement of surface and ground water throughout the State. Primary activities include the systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of hydrologic data, evaluation of water demands, and water-resources research. Four types of hydrologic investigations are conducted: (1) data-collection activities, (2) statewide or regbnal investigations, (3) local or areal investigations, and (4) research. These studies are funded through joint-funding agreements with State and local agencies, transfer of funds from other Federal agencies, and direct Federal funds.

Forty water-related studies were ongoing during fiscal years 1989 through 1991 in Kansas. This report describes for each study the problem that initiated the study, the objectives of the study, the approach designed to achieve the objectives, and significant milestones and publications that resulted during fiscal years 1989-91. Information on more than 1,800 data-collection stations in Kansas is presented in maps and tables. A list of 81 reports and abstracts published or released by the U.S. Geological Survey, its cooperators, or technical and scientific organizations during calendar years 1989, 1990, and 1991 is provided.
