Rock Your State!

Hey everyone!  I looked at all the maps that were posted here as of 1 pm on Monday, and I've added comments where I think they might be helpful.  You still have time to find a new map or correct any issues!  --Laura Sanders

http://www.geo.ua.edu/map/ALSEleg.gifDeyue, this map doesn't list the names of the rock types.  Can you find one that does?  --LS

Map/Legend
 http://pubs.usgs.gov/ha/ha730/ch_n/gif/N036.gif  The map looks good, John.
The "legend", though informative, seems to be from a different publication altogether, and not related to the map.  I suggest deleting this, as we are only interested in a legend that explains the specific map.

 New Jersey  Lina Latif  Map/Legend: http://www.nj.nrcs.usda.gov/partnerships/envirothon/soils/geology.html Lina, could you try again with this address?  It seems not to be correct (I get an error message when I paste it into a browser window.)

 map:http://minerals.usgs.gov/projects/surveys_and_analysis/dig_geol_maps.html#new_york  Matt, this link doesn't seem to take us directly to the map.  Can you give us one that does?

This legend", though informative, seems to be from a different publication altogether, and not related to the map.  I suggest deleting this, as we are only interested in a legend that explains the specific map.  However, you might find information here that helps you interpret the map.

 http://www.uwgb.edu/dutchs/StateGeolMaps/OregGMap.HTM  Jenna, this is map is one in a series that uses a rather complicated system of labeling rock units.  It does not have a lot of detail regarding the rock types, but there is enough information there to pull out at least some rock type names.  I mainly just want you to be aware it's not as simplistic a legend as you might find on most maps, and it might cause you a bit more frustration than another map might.  If you're okay with that, this is fine!  :-)

 Virginia    
 Washington  Amanda Chavez  http://geology.about.com/library/bl/maps/n_statemap_WA1200.htm Mandy, as you and I have discussed, the legend of this map gives only the ages of the rock formations--it doesn't tell us what the rock types are (e.g. granite, sandstone, limestone, marble...).  Can you find another map, or more information on each of the formations listed here, to learn what rock types they are?
 West Virginia    
 Wisconsin  Megan Wolske     http://www.uwex.edu/wgnhs/bdrk.htm  Megan, this map is fine, but there is one with better resolution at this same site.  Go to the "Sample maps of Wisconsin" page for pdfs, as it says in the caption to the map.  The pdf version will print more clearly, so you won't have to squint to read the legend.
