A Lower Lance Florule from Harding County, South Dakota

Description: From page 127: For the last few years Mr. Henry E. Lee, of Rapid City, S.Dak., has been sending me selected material from the lower part of the Lance formation of Harding County, S.Dak., the exact locality being what is locally known as the Jump Off, an erosion basin of the headwaters of the South Fork of the Grand River, 10 miles north of the East Short Pine Hills. 1 The matrix is a soft gray friable sandstone, and consequently only the coarser, more resistant plants are preserved. In view of the coarseness of the matrix the preservation is excellent, although usually the finer details of venation are obscure. In the sands overlying the plant beds are thin seams of impure lignite.

The Moraines of the Missouri Coteau, and their Attendant Deposits

Description: Introduction: It seems important that several general facts should be stated for the full understanding of terms used and allusions made in this report. The field considered is the region lying between the Missouri and James rivers, and between the latitudes of Jamestown, N. Dak., and Huron, S. Dak. 1. As has been stated in papers published by Chamberlin, Upham, myself, and others, several more or less distinct moraines have been observed in the Mississippi Valley. It has been found convenient to distinguish the outermost three by special names. President Chamberlin has named them, beginning with the outermost, Altamont, Gary, and Antelope moraines, from localities south of Big Stone Lake, and these names have been quite generally adopted. Upham and others have named them the First, Second, and Third, and as the outermost two are the more prominent, they have also been called the Outer and Inner moraines. Each of these, especially the First and Second, has subordinate divisions, which mark the borders of the different lobes into which the margin of the ice sheet was often divided. 2.) It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the generally recognized features of drift formations, such as the undulating topography and the series of drift deposits, covering an area with successive layers of till in a manner which might be compared to a nest of spoons of assorted sizes, the smaller lying inside the larger. Of these spoonshaped deposits, the moraines form the outer rims. 3.) As the moraines are the most conspicuous features of the drift formations, we may take them as the basis for dividing the subject. Not only are they the most conspicuous features of the topography, but they mark culminations of glacial activity. We therefore propose reviewing our subject under the following heads: I.) The First ...

A Digital-Computer Model of the Big Sioux Aquifer in Minnehaha County, South Dakota

Description: From purpose and approach of study: The purpose of this study was to develop a predictive model of the ground-water system for use as a management tool. The model will be used by State and local officials in evaluating the effects of alternative methods of controlling or developing the ground-water resources of the Big Sioux aquifer in Minnehaha County.

Estimating 1980 Ground-Water Pumpage for Irrigation on the High Plains in Parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming

Description: From introduction: This report describes the results of 1980 sampling of ground-water pumpage for irrigation on the High Plains, one phase of the High Plains Regional Aquifer-System Analysis project. These data were collected to estimate the volume of irrigation water pumped during 1980 and to determine current trends in irrigation pumpage on the High Plains.

A Data-Management System for Areal Interpretive Data for the High Plains in Parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming

Description: From abstract: The High Plains Regional Aquifer System Analysis study has developed a regional water-resources (and related) data storage and retrieval system to organize and preserve areal interpretive data. The system is general and can easily be adapted for other studies. This report documents the High Plains data base as well as the general system that is independent of the High Plains area.

Water Resources of Hanson and Davison Counties, South Dakota

Description: From introduction: In July 1977, the South Dakota Geological Survey and the U.S. Geological Survey began a 4-year study to evaluate the water resources and geology of Hanson and Davison Counties. The purpose of this report is to provide hydrogeologic information for future water development and planning in the counties. This study is part of an evaluation of the water resources and geology of eastern South Dakota (fig. 1).

A Two-Dimensional, Finite-Difference Model of the High Plains Aquifer in Southern South Dakota

Description: Purpose: The objectives of this study were (1) to collect, synthesize, and interpret geologic and hydrologic data on the aquifer in the southern South Dakota area; (2) to evaluate, by digital-computer-model simulation, values assigned to the aquifer parameters; and (3) to evaluate the sensitivity of the calibrated digital-computer-model to changes in magnitude of the selected hydrologic parameters. Results of this study are, therefore, applicable to solving potential water-resource management problems in the southern South Dakota and northern Nebraska model area.

Evaluation of the Response of the Big Sioux Aquifer to Extreme Drought Conditions in Minnehaha County, South Dakota

Description: From purpose and approach of study: The purpose of this study was to use the digital-computer model developed from the previous study (Koch, 1982) to examine the effects on the aquifer of a pumping rate of 25 million gallons a day under the worst-drought conditions that occurred during 1974-78. A frequency rating was determined for the most severe low-flow condition in the Big Sioux River.

Preliminary Digital Model of Ground-Water Flow in the Madison Group, Powder River Basin and Adjacent Areas, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Nebraska

Description: Abstract: A digital simulation model was used to analyze regional ground-water flow in the Madison Group aquifer in the Powder River Basin and adjacent areas. Most recharge to the aquifer originates in or near the outcrop areas of the Madison in the Bighorn Mountains and Black Hills , and most discharge occurs through springs and wells. Results from the model calculations indicate that the total flow through the aquifer in the modeled areas was approximately 200 cubic feet per second (5.7 cubic metres per second). The aquifer can probably sustain increased ground-water withdrawals probably would significantly lower the potentiometric surface in the Madison aquifer in a large part of the basin. The digital model could better predict the effects of withdrawals if more accurate estimates of the storage coefficient, transmissivity, and leakance could be obtained.
