Geologic Map of the GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS National Park Region,<BR>Tennessee and North Carolina<BR>USGS Scientific Investigations Map 2997

The geology of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park region of Tennessee and North Carolina was studied from 1993 to 2003 as part of a cooperative investigation by the U.S. Geological Survey with the National Park Service (NPS). This work resulted in a 1:100,000-scale geologic map derived from mapping that was conducted at scales of 1:24,000 and 1:62,500. The geologic data are intended to support cooperative investigations with the NPS, the development of a new soil map by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory. In response to a request by the NPS, we mapped previously unstudied areas, revised the geology where problems existed, and developed a map database for use in interdisciplinary research, land management, and interpretive programs for park visitors. -From the USGS website. By Scott Southworth, Art Schultz, John N. Aleinikoff, and Arthur J. Merschat. 2012. 1:100,000 scale. Folded map. Includes explanatory book.
