Wooten, Richard M., Merschat, Carl E., Carter, Mark W. 2003. Map of slope movements and related surficial deposits, Gorges State Park, Transylvania County, North Carolina. Geological map series 10B. North Carolina Geological Survey: Raleigh. Price: $11.00

This surficial unit map is at a scale of 1:12,000 on a topographic base with a 40-foot contour interval. The map includes map unit descriptions, soil sample data for selected sites, description of weathered-rock slide maps and cross section units and slide movement inferred from tree ring analysis for the Toxaway River Slide, slope movement and surficial map unit contacts, and five cross sections. Gorges State Park is located on the Reed 7.5-minute quadrangle. (See also accompanying publication -- Geological map series 10A).  

 

Merschat, Carl E., Carter, Mark W., and Wooten, Richard M. 2003. Bedrock geologic map of Gorges State Park, Transylvania County, North Carolina. Geological map series 10A. North Carolina Geological Survey: Raleigh. Price: $11.00

This geologic map is at a scale of 1:12,000 on a topographic base with a 40-foot contour interval. The map includes rock unit descriptions, stream sediment heavy mineral analysis, whole rock ICP analysis of selected samples, a sketch map showing metamorphic and igneous conditions, one cross section, mineral resources, and stereographic analysis of structural elements. Gorges State Park is located on the Reed 7.5-minute quadrangle. (See also accompanying publication -- Geological map series 10B).  

 

Merschat, Carl E., and Carter, Mark W., 2002. Bedrock Geologic Map of the Bent Creek Research and Demonstration Forest, Southern Research Station, USDA Forest Service, including the North Carolina Arboretum and a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Geological map series 9. North Carolina Geological Survey: Raleigh. Price: $11.00

This geologic map is at a scale of 1:12,000 on a topographic base with a 40-foot contour interval. The map includes rock unit descriptions, stream sediment heavy mineral analysis, whole rock ICP analysis of selected metasedimentary and metaigneous samples, a sketch map showing contoured scintillation readings, two cross sections, geochemical analyses of amphibolite, and stereographic analysis of structural elements.  

 

Lawrence, David P. 1996. Simple bouguer gravity anomaly map of the Raleigh 30 x 60-minute quadrangle. Geological Map Series 4. North Carolina Geological Survey: Raleigh. Price: $3.00

This bouguer gravity (geophysical) map provides new gravity information for the subject area. This map is an outgrowth of the national geological mapping effort.

 

Snyder, Hine, Riggs and Snyder. 1993. Miocene geology of the Continental Shelf: Onslow Bay, North Carolina. Geological map series 3. North Carolina Geological Survey: Raleigh. Price: $4.00

This map provides new information on the distribution of Miocene geologic units exposed at the seafloor surface.

This map also is required companion as the exercise basis for the educational publication "Investigating the Miocene geology of the North Carolina Continental Shelf" that is suitable for grades 9-12. Refer to "Geologic Notes" elsewhere at this Internet site for information on how to order this map.

 

Wilson, William F. 1975. Geology of the Winstead 15-minute quadrangle, North Carolina. Geological map series 2. North Carolina Geological Survey: Raleigh. Price: $3.00

This geologic map provides geologic and mineral resource information for the sugject area located in Caswell and Person counties, North Carolina.

 

Wilson, William F. 1969. Geology of the Pilot Mountain and Pinnical quadrangles, North Carolina. Geological map series 1. North Carolina Geological Survey: Raleigh. Price: $3.00

This geologic maps provides geologic and mineral resource information for the sugject area located in Stokes and Surry counties, North Carolina.
