Dewatering of the Clayton Formation During Construction of the Walter F. George Lock and Dam, Fort Gaines, Clay County, Georgia

Description: From purpose of the report: The purpose of this report is to present the available information regarding the relation between the rate of ground-water withdrawal and the rate of decline or artesian pressure in a 40-foot "shell" limestone aquifer that was dewatered during construction of Walter F. George Lock and Dam...The report indicates a potential source of a large supply of ground water available for industrial and other uses in an area readily accessible by barge transportation from the Gulf of Mexico to Columbus, Ga.

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.

Inland Travel of Tide-Driven Saline Water in the Altamaha and Satilla Rivers, Georgia, and the St. Mary's River, Georgia-Florida

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this study was to determine the distance the tide-driven saline water from the ocean traveled upstream and to define the specific-conductance and chloronity gradients in the lower reaches of the Altamaha, Satilla, and St. Marys Rivers during the high spring tide and low-flow event.

Quality-Assurance Data for Routine Water Analysis in the Laboratories of the U.S. Geological Survey: 1981 Annual Report

Description: Abstract: The U.S. Geological Survey maintains a quality-assurance program based on the analysis of reference samples for its two water-analysis laboratories located in Atlanta, Georgia, and Denver, Colorado. Reference samples containing inorganic constituents are prepared at the U.S. Geological Survey's Ocala, Florida office and disguised as routine samples, and sent daily to each laboratory through other U.S. Geological Survey offices. The results are permanently stored in the National Water Data Storage and Retrieval System (WATSTORE), the U.S. Geological Survey's data base for all water data. These data are analyzed statistically for precision and bias. The results of these statistical analyses are presented for data collected during the 1981 calendar year. In addition, one sample containing known concentrations chlorophyll a were analyzed in both laboratories, and these results also are presented.

Base Flow of Streams in the Outcrop Area of Southeastern Sand Aquifer: South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this study are to derive base flow estimates for representative parts of the Cretaceous and Tertiary clastic outcrop area as an aid in estimating recharge to the sand aquifers; to use base flow relations to estimate aquifer hydraulic parameters; and to relate the lithology of the aquifer to the streamflow duration curves.

Effects of the Drought of 1980-81 on Streamflow and on Ground-Water Levels in Georgia

Description: From purpose and scope: This report examines and discusses the severity, areal extent, and duration of the 1980-81 drought in Georgia. This drought produced the lowest rates of streamflow since 1954 in most areas of the State and the lowest since 1925 in some areas.

Flood-Frequency Relations for Urban Streams in Metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia

Description: From abstract: A knowledge of the magnitude and frequency of floods is needed for the design of highway drainage structures, for establishing flood insurance rates, and for many other uses by urban planners and engineers. This report presents a method for estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods on small streams in the Atlanta, Georgia, metropolitan area.

Geology of the Coastal Plain of Georgia

Description: From preface: The manuscript of this report, which is the culmination of field and office studies carried on intermittently s' ice 1914, partly in cooperation with the Geological Survey of Georgia, was completed early in 1938. It was prepared with the expectation that it would form part of a more comprehensive report on the geology of Georgia by several authors, which was intended to accompany a geologic map of the entire State on a scale of 1: 500,000. However, this map without the text was published in 1939 by the Georgia Division of Mines, Mining and Geology. Part of this map is reproduced herein as plate 1 without revision.

Progress Report of Southeastern Monazite Exploration, 1952

Description: Report about monzanite placers in streams of the western part of the Piedmont in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. The objective of the report is to describe local monazite deposits, to determine geologic controls of monazite placers in the southeastern Piedmont, and to evaluate placer potentialities of the area.
