Bedrock Geologic Map of Old Mine Park

Bedrock Geologic Map of Old Mine Park
The Bedrock Geologic Map of The Old Mine Park Area, Trumbull, Connecticut, is a collaboration between the State Geological Survey, Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the Geological Society of Connecticut. The map is a modern scientific survey of the Park geology, depicting bedrock units, mineralogy, geologic structures, and geochronology, with an explanatory text. An accompanying geologic guidebook and GIS data are forthcoming in 2020.

 

This map is a contribution toward the modernization of Connecticut bedrock mapping. It provides improvements in our understanding of Earth processes and resources, as well as enhances geoscience information needed for land management and societal applications.
