A substantial quantity of geologic data was generated in the salt mining district in Livingston County, New York, following the collapse and subsequent flooding of the Retsof and Sterling Salt Mines in 1994. Most of the data were collected while investigating conditions in the area of the collapse and later while developing a new mine. This publication presents the bedrock stratigraphy and structural conditions derived from the assimilation of those recent data into a preexisting database for a 277-square-mile area of Livingston County that extends from the Wyoming County Line on the west to Livonia on the east, and generally lies between Avon and Sonyea on the north and south, respectively.
Along with 12 plates separate from the text, this new Map and Chart includes a 72 page booklet illustrated with 6 figures and 9 color photographs.
Plates include data location map, representative geologic column and associated natural gamma log API well #21575, geologic cross sections, total salt thickness map, isopach map, pre-Onondaga paleogeologic and paleorelief map, bedrock map, and top of Tioga "B" bentonite structural contour map. This publication serves as an important research tool for the professional geologist, earth science teacher, geology student or anyone interested in obtaining subsurface geologic information about western New York.
