Geology of Indiana

Geologic mapping is one of the critical tools needed to plan for greater economic development in Indiana. Accurate geologic maps assure that the state continues to prosper, and that Indiana’s land, water, energy, and mineral resources are adequate for the present and sustainable for times ahead. Using advanced techniques to produce high quality maps, the IGS analyzes the present to forecast future trends for our drinking water, infrastructure, agricultural land, environment, and demographic makeup. Such information is important to every citizen of Indiana, from those responsible for making decisions about the use of our resources, to high school students learning the earth sciences.
