Gohn, G.S., and Edwards, L.E., 2000, Preliminary stratigraphic
database for the subsurface Tertiary and uppermost Cretaceous
sediments of Dorchester County, South Carolina: U.S. Geological
Survey Open-File Report 00-049, CD-ROM.
This report consists of four chapters that contain a GIS
database and supporting information. The report describes the
subsurface lower Tertiary and uppermost Cretaceous geology of
Dorchester County, which is located in the central part of the
South Carolina Coastal Plain. Chapter A contains the database,
which consists of spatially referenced stratigraphic columns
and biostratigraphic data tables for selected corehole sections.
Chapter B contains an overview of the geology of Dorchester County
written in HTML format. Chapter C contains printable versions
of the corehole sections in a non-GIS format, and Chapter D presents
a palynologic study of the Maastrichtian sections found in Dorchester
County and elsewhere in the South Carolina Coastal Plain; this
chapter also is in HTML format.
