Paper Abstract

To fully assess the environmental regime, it is necessary to identify and account for the effects of the surrounding and underlying geology that influence landscape development and geophysical tools. The geologic environment is the result of a complex network of past and present processes, including deposition and weathering by wind, water, and ice, which produce subsurface conditions difficult to interpret without expert geologic characterization and laboratory analysis. The assessment of geologic history consists of a thorough literature review, site reconnaissance and characterization, and laboratory and microscopic analyses.
