Louisiana Geological Survey Publishes Geologic Quadrangle Map for Monroe Area
Funding for the mapping work is provided on an annual competitive basis by the U.S. Geological Survey under the National Co-operative Mapping Program. The geologic compilation for the Monroe South map was performed by LGS research associates Richard P. McCulloh and Paul V. Heinrich, with cartography by research associate Robert Paulsell and cartographic manager John Snead. The GIS compilation was done by research associate R. Hampton Peele, along with graduate students J. Ramachandran, J. George and Marcus Massom.
Created by the Louisiana Legislature in 1934, LGS is the only geologic mapping research agency in the state. Quadrangle maps published by LGS are critical for the creation of derivative maps used extensively by industry for environmental projects, site location and numerous other industrial and economic development projects.
The Monroe South map and the other quadrangle maps published by LGS are available from LGS publications: 225-578-8590 or http://www.lgs.lsu.edu/deploy/publications/publicationcatalog.php
