Item Number: OFS95-01

INTRODUCTION: This report summarizes an investigation of the geology and potential reservoir characteristics of the Pennsylvanian rocks underlying the Landfill and Sludge Application Sites at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) (herein referred to as "Crane") located just east of Crane, Indiana. The intent of this study was to analyze bedrock facies relationships immediately beneath the two areas-of-concern to determine the potential constituent migration pathways and barriers within the shallow bedrock aquifer system. This was done in association with an on-going site assessment and remediation program conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Kvale, E. 1995, Bedrock facies controls on potential constituent migration-pathways and barriers, landfill and sludge application sites, Crane, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indiana: Indiana Geological Survey Open-File Study 95-01, 40 p., 12 fig., 4 pl.

Notes: Publications in the Indiana Geological Survey Open-File series have been inconsistently named using a variety of series titles including "Open-File Report," "Open-File Map," and "Open-File Study." Prior to 1994, a publication in this series was generally referred to as an "Open-File Report" (but not always). To help reduce confusion created by these inconsistencies, the IGS now refers to every publication in the Open-File series as an "Open-File Study." To be entirely correct in writing a bibliographic reference for a publication, one should use the series name and number that appears on the publication itself.
