General Description

This map is a graphic summary of information about rock units in the State at the time of the map compilation.  The scale of the map forces an exaggeration of the outcrop width of the thinner map units, therefore, rock units shown may be present in small outliers.  The differences in tectonic features, lithologic boundaries, geographic extent of rock units, and strqatigraphic nomenclature between the Geologic Map of Arkansas (Arkansas Geological Commission, 1976) and this map are based on published and unpublished geologic reports prepared since 1929 and on detailed and reconnaissance mapping done in conjunction with the preparation of this map.

This map is a compilation of 178, 1:24,000 scale geologic worksheets for the Ouachita Mountain and Arkansas Valley Regions (COGEO State Project Maps).  The geologic information was then prepared onto ten 1:100,000 scale topographic maps..  Then those ten maps were combined into seamless layers by digitization. The geology mapping was done by B. R. Haley and C. G. Stone and compilation and editing of this map was by W. D. Hanson.
