Summary of Work on the Mineralogy and Petrography of Southeast Phosphates Through April 1952

Description: From abstract: "In this report the mineralogy and uranium contents of southeast phosphates are discussed with reference to the lithologic units of the Hawthorn and Bone Valley formations and to waste slimes. In addition, the immediate problem of sampling leached-zone rock for process development studies is discussed and plans for future work (fiscal 1953) are presented."

Stratigraphy of Middle Tertiary Rocks in Part of West-Central Florida

Description: The following report presents the results of part of a geologic study of the phosphate deposits in central Florida. The purpose of the investigative research done in Florida is to determine the geologic history of the phosphate deposits and associated sediments, in order that the distribution of phosphate and uranium will be more clearly understood.

The Aluminum Phosphate Zone in the Peace River Area, Land-Pebble Phosphate Field, Florida

Description: Report discussing information on the aluminum phosphate zone of the Peace River area. At the time of the report, the first plant to treat aluminum phosphate was probably to be located in this area. Information on the geology of the area, weathering/erosion, mineralogy, occurrence and distribution of aluminum, chemical relations and variations of aluminum phosphate, relation of geologic features, mining plans, and tonnage/grade of the zone are included.

Research Plan for Marine Turtle Fibropapilloma

Description: The following report is the results of a workshop held to determine the cause of fibropapilloma (lobulated tumors), thereby ultimately leading to solutions and effective strategies for containment. The urgent need to solve this problem arises from the unanimous belief among the workshop participants that this disease will continue to affect populations of turtles locally and worldwide, adding further to their survival difficulties. The workshop was held in December of 1990 and the research behind the workshop results from about 10 years of observing the species.

Pliocene Fossils From Limestone in Southern Florida

Description: Abstract: This paper describes the mollusks and echinoids found in limestone dredged from ditches along the Tamiami Trail in southern Florida, in the area mapped as "Lostmans River limestone (Quaternary)" by Sanford but included in the Pliocene Caloosahatchee formation by Cooke and Mossom on the evidence of these fossils as identified by Mansfield. The matrix of the fossils is unlike the typical Caloosahatchee formation, which is sandy, but the fauna is closely related to that of the upper part of the Caloosahatchee formation and is regarded as a facies of the Caloosahatchee. The fauna shows considerable resemblance to that of the Imperial formation of California but may not be contemporaneous with it.

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.

Drainage Basins in Duval County, Florida

Description: "Duval County in northeastern Florida and adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean contains approximately 840 square miles of which approximately 80 square miles are covered by water. The county is drained by three major rivers, the St. Johns, Nassau, and St. Marys. In addition, the coastal areas are drained by numerous small streams that empty into the Intracoastal Waterway or the Atlantic Ocean."

Origins and Distribution of Saline Ground Waters in the Floridian Aquifer in Coastal Southwest Florida

Description: From introduction: Recognizing the need for comprehensive information about these waters of variable quality, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Southwest Florida Water Management District, investigated their character and distribution in the Mansota and lower Peace Basins (fig. 1). This report presents the results of the study. Principal objectives were to: (1) develop a better understanding of areal water-quality variations, and (2) relate the information developed to the extant concepts of the areal geohydrologic system.

A Preliminary Appraisal of Sediment Sources and Transport in Kings Bay and Vicinity, Georgia and Florida

Description: From introduction: This report reviews descriptive background information of the Kings Bay area and presents data on currents, salinity, temperature, turbidity, suspended sediment, phytoplankton, and on the chemical and physical characteristics of bottom sediments. Water, salt, and suspended-sediment discharges are computed for consecutive ebbtides and floodtides that occurred during the November investigation.
