Web Site of the Week: Maryland Geological Survey

The Maryland Geological Survey (MGS) provides excellent information about the geology of the Old Line State, along with public reports and updates on various ongoing projects. The homepage features live earthquake data and maps that deal with oyster habitat restoration projects, fact sheets, and new reports on lead concentrations in well water across the state. The Publications area contains dozens of maps (such as that of the “Maryland Gold District”) and links to Popular Publications such as “Caves of Maryland” and “Baltimore Building Stones Tour.” The Data section is also quite useful, offering a number of informative data sets on sediment distribution in the Chesapeake Bay and Baltimore Harbor. Finally, the Education area contains an “Ask a Geologist” link that’s quite useful for getting answers to Earth-based queries. [KMG]
