Geologic Mapping in the Black Hills at , scale. Project Description. The need for , scale geologic maps has become crucial in parts of the Black Hills of South Dakota, however, geologic map coverage at this scale ranges from good quality published maps to areas that have little or no mapping. The Dakota Formation is a sedimentary geologic formation composed of sandstone, mudstone, and shale deposited in the late-Early to early-Late Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway. The unit is noted for being exceptionally widespread, producing massive colorful rock formations, and preserving dinosaur footprints and early deciduous tree es: Morrison Formation (Colorado Front Range).

transmissivity of the aquifer is high and the potentiometric surface is relatively flat. A poten­ tiometric high near Valdosta in the western part of this area is caused by recharge of about 70 million gallons per day from the With lacoochee River (Krause, ).

The Inyan Kara, Minnelusa, and Madison aquifers are the principal sources of ground water in the northern Black Hills, South Dakota and Wyoming, and Bear Lodge Mountains, Wyoming.

The Inyan Kara aquifer is composed of the sandstone beds of the Inyan Kara Group of Early Cretaceous by: Flowing wells and springs that originate from the confined aquifers are common around the periphery of the Black Hills. The purpose of this map is to show the potentiometric surface of the Inyan Kara aquifer within the study area.

The map provides a tool for evaluating ground-water flow directions and hydraulic gradients in the Inyan Kara aquifer. Potentiomentic Surface of the Minnelusa Aquifer in the Black Hills Area, South Dakota (the Inyan Kara, Minnekahta, Minnelusa, Madison, and Deadwood aquifers).

The Black Hills (Lakota: Ȟe Sápa; Cheyenne: Moʼȯhta-voʼhonáaeva; Hidatsa: awaxaawi shiibisha) are a small and isolated mountain range rising from the Great Plains of North America in western South Dakota and extending into Wyoming, United States. Black Elk Peak (formerly known as Harney Peak), which rises to 7, feet (2, m), is the range's highest nates: 43°59′N °45′W /.

General Ground-Water Studies in the Black Hills. SD Mines Aquifer Mapping Project: South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and the West Dakota Water Development District The Black Hills Aquifer Mapping Project has produced two types of studies relating to ground water in Pennington and Custer Counties.

The Inyan Kara Group which resembles the Dakota Formation and crops out in the Black Hills, is not represented either at the surface or in the subsurface at the type area of the Dakota.

The potentiometric surface is the level to which water rises in a well. In a confined aquifer this surface is above the top of the aquifer unit; whereas, in an unconfined aquifer, it is the same as the water table.

The following cartoon depicts an aquifer with an unconfined section on the left and a confined section on the right (Fetter, ). in The Black Hills Hydrology Study was designed as a regional assessment of the water resources and was not designed to address site-specific issues.

The study focused on describing the hydrologic significance of the major bedrock aquifers in the Black Hills area, which are the Inyan Kara. Potentiometric surface of the Inyan Kara Aquifer in the Black Hills area, South Dakota / U.S.

The Dakota Aquifer is a part of the Great Plains Aquifer System, which “underlies most of Nebraska, about one-half of Kansas, the eastern one-third of Colorado, and small parts of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, South Dakota, and Wyoming” (USGS, ).

Fig. 1 Area covered by the Dakota Aquifer. Previous studies of the Dakota Aquifer in South Dakota attributed elevated groundwater sulfate concentrations to Madison Aquifer recharge in the Black Hills with subsequent chemical evolution prior to upward migra-tion into the Dakota Aquifer.

This study examines the plausibility of a Madison Aquifer origin for groundwater in northeastern Nebraska. northern Black Hills, four miles northwest of Lead, South Dakota.

However, some wells were completed in unconfined settings in an aquifer not bounded by impermeable layers. Ground-water elevations (heads) in wells were used to map the potentiometric-head surface in the fractured-bedrock aquifer adjacent to Great Bay, N.H. Remotely sensed data, spring-water temperatures and specific conductances, land-surface elevations, and simulated heads were also used to guide construction of the potentiometric surface.
