  • Patton, John B. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1949)
    During the field seasons of 1947 and 1948, two field parties of the Division of Geology, Indiana Department of Conservation, examined, sampled and mapped the quarries that are producing crushed stone in Indiana. Although ...
  • Walker, Frank H. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1959)
    This preliminary report on the natural brines of Indiana and adjoining parts of Illinois and Kentucky is a compilation of 473 brine analyses. The analyses are classified on a stratigraphic basis and cover stratigraphic ...
  • Harrison, W. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1959)
    When areal geologic mapping is done by the Indiana Geological Survey in counties covered by glacial drift, it is necessary to determine the Pleistocene stratigraphic sequence. For most areas this involves identification ...
  • Murray, Haydn H. (Indiana Department of Conservation, 1957)
    Laboratory tests show that five underclays from western and southwestern Indiana are potential sources of bonding clay for foundries. Green and dry strength tests were dteremined for each sample, obtained from a commercially ...
  • Winslow, John D. (Indiana Department of Conservation, 1960)
    Preliminary engineering geology investigations have been made of four proposed dam sites and their reservoir areas in the valley of the East Fork of the Muscatatuck River and its tributaries, Big Camp and Big Graham ...
  • Murray, Haydn H.; Patton, John B. (Indiana Department of Conservation, 1953)
    In the past few years, largely because of increased freight rates, a keen interest in finding sources of high-silica sand has developed. The Geological Survey has received many inquiries about possible sources of ...
  • Hasenmueller, Nancy R. (Indiana Department of Natural Resources, 1988)
    The Indiana State Board of Health, with assistance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), expanded the program to assess indoor-radon levels in homes in the state during the 1987-88 heating season. This ...
  • Smith, Ned M. (Department of Natural Resources, 1965)
    Lithologic similarities between the Salem Limestone and the subjacent Harrodsburg Limestone, redefined here, indicate a close relationship between these formations, which are assigned to a new rock unit, the Sanders ...
  • Wayne, William J. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1965)
    The main advance of glacial ice into central Indiana during Wisconsin time had two distinct pulsations within a span of about 1,000 years. The first, about 21,000 years ago, reached farthest south and built the segmented ...
  • Gray, Henry H. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1962-11)
    The Mansfield Formation of early Pennsylvanian age crops out in an area of approximately 1,700 square miles in southwestern Indiana. Three-fifths of the formation consists of sandstone; most of the remainder is finer clastic ...
  • Friedman, Samuel A. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1960-12)
    Data from coal-test boreholes and outcrops show that channel-fill sandstones occur at 32 localities in western Indiana in the Brazil, Staunton, Linton, Petersburg, and Dugger Formations of middle Pennsylvanian age. These ...
  • Dawson, Thomas A. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1960-11)
    The Indiana Farm Bureau Cooperative Association, Inc. No. 1 Luther Brown well in Lawrence County established a new depth record for Indiana of 6,806 feet. The Farm Bureau No. 1 Brown well was drilled proficiently. Although ...
  • Winslow, John D.; Gates, Gary R.; Melhorn, Wilton N. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1960-07)
    The Salt Creek drainage basin in Monroe, Brown, and Jackson Counties, Indiana was studied to provide basic information for the planning of the Monroe Reservoir. This report principally concerns the dam site and spillway ...
  • Rudman, Albert J. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1960-04)
    The surface of the basement complex that underlies five counties in southwestern Indiana has been mapped by the reflection seismograph method. Seismic shot points were spaced 1 to 3 miles apart along six traverses in Gibson, ...
  • Harrison, Wyman (Indiana Geological Survey, 1959-09)
    Two to four till sheets were deposited in Marion County, Indiana by the East White sublobe of the Ontario-Erie major lobe of the Wisconsin ice sheet. Fraction analyses (mineralogy and lithology versus size) were made for ...
  • Canright, James E. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1959-08)
    Plant fossils were first recorded in Indiana by David Dale Owen in l843. Lesquereux's "Description of the Coal Flora of the Carboniferous Formation in Pennsylvania and Throughout the United States," published in 1880, ...
  • Walker, Frank H. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1959-04)
    This preliminary report on the natural brines of Indiana and adjoining parts of Illinois and Kentucky is a compilation of 473 brine analyses. The analyses were obtained from the files of many companies as well as from ...
  • Murray, Haydn H.; Smith, John M. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1958-10)
    Laboratory tests show that some Indiana shales are potential sources of manufactured lightweight aggregate. Bloating, the process by which lightweight aggregates are manufactured, is caused by various constituents acting ...
  • Bundy, Wayne M. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1956-09)
    Most of the iron deposits of Martin and Greene Counties, Ind. , are within the Mansfield formation (lower Pennsylvanian), but small deposits also occur in the Beech Creek limestone (upper Mississippian). Goethite, the major ...
  • Patton, John B. (Indiana Geological Survey, 1955)
    Underground storage of petroleum, and particularly of liquid petroleum products, is relatively new and is growing rapidly in favor. The increased use of this method is caused, in part, by economic factors such as cheaper ...
