Generalized Lithology and Lithogeochemical Character of Near-Surface Bedrock in the New England Region
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2003_225

Abstract: This geographic information system (GIS) data layer shows the dominant
lithology and geochemical, termed lithogeochemical, character of near-surface
bedrock in the New England region covering the states of Connecticut, Maine,
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The bedrock units in
the map are generalized into groups based on their lithological composition
and, for granites, ... View entire text
