Appraisal of the Interconnection Between the St. Johns River and the Surficial Aquifer, East-Central Duval County, Florida

Description: From introduction: The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, conducted a 1-year study to determine the effects of proposed deepening of the navigation channel on the surficial aquifer. A specific objective was to determine the degree of interconnection that exists current between the limestone adjacent to the river and the limestone in the riverbed that is to be dredged.

Making Lime on the Farm

Description: "The farmer can buy lime from commercial sources in the form and degree of purity desired; he can produce his own if he has a convenient supply of raw material; or he can cooperate with his neighbors in working a deposit. This bulletin deals with factors which should be considered by a farmer or a group of farmers before investing in equipment for obtaining lime from limestone or marl." -- p. 1

Uranium Deposits in Oolitic Limestone Near Mayoworth, Johnson County, Wyoming

Description: From abstract: The uranium deposits of the Mayoworth area, Johnson County. Wyo., are in oolitic limestone at the base of the Sundance formation of Late Jurassic age. The uranium mineral has been identified as metatyuyamunite, a hydrous calcium uranium vanadate, that coats joints and fractures and replaces calcite in both the cement and the oolites. The known deposits of the area are of sub-ore grade, have a high lime content, and are not of economic importance at this time.

Preliminary Results of a Survey for Thick High-Calcium Limestone Deposits in the United States

Description: From introduction: This report contains the results of a preliminary study of limestone deposits in the United States and Alaska for the purpose of selecting those deposits of sufficient size, relief, and purity in which to conduct an underground nuclear test.

Carbon Dioxide in Mississippian Rocks of the Paradox Basin and Adjacent Areas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona

Description: From abstract: This report is about six gas samples that were obtained from the Mississippian Leadville Limestone in the McElmo field, Colorado, and the Lisbon field, Utah. These samples were recorded to contain a high reading of carbon dioxide and the report investigates these results.

Weight Losses of Marble and Limestone Briquettes Exposed to Outdoor Environment in the Eastern United States: Results of Exposure 1988-1992

Description: Monitoring continued on weight changes in marble and limestone briquettes exposed to the outdoor environment at sites in the eastern US. This report presents data for the exposure period 1988 - 1992 and summarizes results for the entire period from 1984. Since 1989, only three exposure sites have remained active, but briquettes from pre-exposed material were added at those sites. A linear relationship was found between cumulative gravimetric losses and exposure period. These losses resulted in an average recession rate of 11 to 21 micrometers/yr for marble and 21 to 45 micrometers/yr for limestone. The recession rates are site-dependent and can be described with respect to rain depth and other atmospheric conditions, as evidenced by the very low rates at the Ohio site on the movable rack, dry regime. Weight monitoring is continuing in a planned 10-year program.

Weight Losses of Marble and Limestone Briquettes Exposed to Outdoor Environments in the Eastern United States : Results of Exposures, 1984-1988

Description: Gravimetric changes in marble and limestone briquettes exposed to outdoor environment at five sites in the eastern United States have been monitored since 1984. An earlier report describes procedures and results obtained in 1984--1988. This report presents the results of the exposure period 1984--1988 and reviews and summarizes those of prior years. A linear relationship was found between cumulative gravimetric losses and exposure period or rain depth. These losses resulted in an average recession rate of 14 to 24 {mu}m/yr for marble and twice that for limestone. Variations in recession among the various exposure sites can be ascribed to differences in rain depth and hydrogen ion concentration. The annual recession rates obtained from gravimetry yielded rates that were for marble twice those obtained from runoff experiments, and more than three times those for limestone; this indicates that physical erosion plays an important role. Gravimetric monitoring of exposed briquettes is continuing in a planned 10-yr program.
