Pacific Northwest Geologic Mapping and Urban Hazards

Geologic Maps

We map variations in bedrock, its geologic structure, and unconsolidated deposits near the surface to help us understand the distribution of geologic hazards, earth resources, and the geologic processes affecting the earth's crust.

30'x60' (1:100,000 scale) maps in the Pacific Northwest geologic mapping and urban hazards study area. Click to on any quad to find maps.

Geologic mapping in the urban corridor is a cooperative effort among the USGS, Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources, Oregon Dept. of Geology and Mineral Industries, University of Washington (GeoMapNW), Oregon State University, and Portland State University.

This website provides downloadable geologic maps, mostly at 30' x 60' (1:100,000) and 7.5' (1:24,000) scale, as produced by the USGS and its university cooperators. Selected USGS paper maps and recent maps of the Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources (WDGER) and the Oregon Dept. of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) that are relevant to the project are also indexed here.

The Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources also provides digital coverage of much of the state at 1:100,000 scale. Contact Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources for information.

More geologic map links can be found on the left hand side of this page.
