Mollusca From the Miocene and Lower Pliocene of Virginia and North Carolina: Part 2. Scaphopoda and Gastropoda

Description: Introduction: Part 2 of the Systematic Report continues and concludes the study of the Mollusca from the Miocene and lower Pliocene of Virginia and North Carolina. One hundred and nineteen species, only a fraction of the known fauna, are reviewed and 66 additional species are described and figured. (See faunal chart, pp. 180-183.) The report upon the gastropods suffers from the same shortcomings obvious in the work on the pelecypods. Most of the material is from old collections made before the importance of the exact placing of the fossil locality both areally and vertically was recognized. Many of the citations of outcrops are vague and the sections generalized. Detailed field studies, particularly on the zoning of the Yorktown formation in southern Virginia and northern North Carolina, were begun later by Wendell P. Mansfield, but he died in the summer of 1939 before the completion of the work.

Uranium in the Southern United States

Description: From introduction: In this study on raw material sources of uranium the Southern Interstate Nuclear Board has catalogued all known occurrences of uranium and some references to thorium in a 17-state area (P1. 1). These occurrences have been evaluated as potential sources of uranium by the State Geological Surveys and the consultant group of SINB. Favorability guides have been applied to the known occurrences and recommendations have been made for future action by the states involved, federal agencies, or by industry. State recommendations are included in state-by-state summaries. The state reports were written either by personnel of the State Geological Surveys or were abstracted from State geological survey data by members of the consultant group...The purpose of this study was to compile information on and systematically assess uranium and other radioactive occurrences in the region. The SINB undertook the project because of its statutory, interstate capability as an extension of government in each of the 17 states, an arrangement that lends itself effectively to this cooperative undertaking.

Hydrology of the Albemarle-Pamlico Region, North Carolina -- a Preliminary Report on the Impact of Agricultural Developments

Description: From abstract: Extensive agricultural land clearing and drainage operations underway in a 650 square mile part of the Albemarle-Pamlico region--a 1,634 square mile peninsula in North Carolina lying between Albemarle Sound on the North and the Pamlico River on the south--are changing the hydrology of the area. The artificial drainage system being constructed in the region, although it will probably result in only a slight modification of the natural annual evatranspiration, overland runoff, and ground-water discharge, will likely result in several important problems.

The Effects of Channel Excavation on Water-Quality Characteristics of the Black River and on Ground-Water Levels Near Dunn, North Carolina

Description: From abstract: Data were collected at three sites on the Black River near Dunn, North Carolina, to define the effects of channel excavation on water-quality characteristics and on ground-water levels in nearby areas. Background data were collected at a site upstream from the 5-mile-long excavated reach. Changes in hydrologic characteristics were determined from data collected before, during, and after the construction period 1976-81. Significant changes occurred in shallow ground-water levels, streamflow velocities, water temperatures, dissolved oxygen, and suspended sediment; little or no change occurred in pH, dissolved solids, nitrogen, phosphorus, and bacteria.

Water Quality of the Neuse River, North Carolina--Variability, Pollution loads, and long-term trends

Description: From abstract: This report presents "a water-quality study of the Neuse River, based on data collected during 1956-77 at the U.S. Geological Survey stations at Clayton and Kinston, employs statistical trend analysis techniques that provide a framework for river-quality assessment." It includes maps, graphs, and tables.

Water-Quality Characteristics of Streams in Forested and Rural Areas of North Carolina

Description: From introduction: This report presents the preliminary findings obtained from the baseline network through 1978. For North Carolina, it represents the first known attempt to determine the concentrations of major chemical and trace constituents and nutrients contributed to the State's streams by natural processes.

Tree Rings as Indicators of Hydrologic Change in the Great Dismal Swamp, Virginia and North Carolina

Description: This report analyses tree rings of large Pinus taeda L. trees "growing near a drainage ditch in the Great Dismal Swamp" and concludes that these rings are "datable and hydrologically sensitive." It includes tables and graphs.

Water Quality of the French Broad River, North Carolina An Analysis of Data Collected at Marshall, 1958-77

Description: From introduction: This report presents the results of an investigation of the quality of water in the French Broad River at Marshall, N.C., that is based on data collected during the period 1958-77. Major objectives of the study were: (1) to define variations in water quality; (2) to determine the degree to which the quality of water in the river is affected by man's activities; and, (3) to identify past and present trends in the chemical quality of water in the river.

Knob Creek Monazite Placer, Cleveland County, North Carolina

Description: From abstract: The area comprising the first flood plain downstream from the headwaters of Knob Creek was one of three monazite placer deposits near Shelby, N. C., recommended by the Geological Survey for investigation by the Bureau of Mines as a joint effort by the above two agencies. Past production of monazite from the headwaters of this stream and its drainage of an area of known source rocks were factors influencing this selection. Drilling of the deposit was started on November 26, 1951, and completed December 29, 1951. Twenty-two churn-drill holes were completed to bed-rock on 112 acres of this flood plain for a total depth of 433 feet of vertical drilling.

The Tin-Spodumene Belt of the Carolinas: a Preliminary Report

Description: From abstract: Cassiterite and spodumene, of possible economic importance, occur in a belt, 24.5 miles long and 1.8 miles in maximum width, extending southwestward from Lincolnton to Grover, N. C. This belt is in the Piedmont province, an upland with an average altitude of 1,000 feet, and is readily accessible by rail and highway. The region is underlain by crystalline limestone, quartzite, schists, gneisses, and granite. The rocks strike northeast and, in most of the belt, dip steeply northwest. Most of them are deeply weathered.

Buffalo Creek Monazite Placer, Cleveland and Lincoln Counties, North Carolina

Description: Introduction: The investigation of monazite deposits in the southeastern states by the Bureau of Mines and the Geological Survey on behalf on the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission was prompted by the history of past production and the many communications reporting the occurrence of monazite in this area.
