PREPARATION OF AN ENGINEERING GEOLOGIC MAP OF THE HOMESTEAD QUADRANGLE IN NORTHEASTERN MONTANA

THE INCREASED ENGINEERING DEMAND FOR GEOLOGIC DATA HAS FOCUSED ATTENTION ON THE ENGINEERING GEOLOGIC MAP. FOUR BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS KIND OF MAP ARE: (1) AVOIDANCE OF HIGHLY TECHNICAL GEOLOGIC TERMS, (2) EMPHASIS ON THE PHYSICAL DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES OF BOTH ROCK AND SOIL MATERIALS, (3) A THREE-DIMENSIONAL QUALITY TO AID IN SUBSURFACE INTERPRETATION, AND (4) EMPHASIS ON DEPOSITS OF CONSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL. THE ENGINEERING GEOLOGIC MAP OF THE HOMESTEAD QUADRANGLE IN NORTHEASTERN MONTANA ATTEMPTS TO FULFILL THESE REQUIREMENTS BY USING SEVERAL SPECIAL TECHNIQUES OF PRESENTATION. THE MAP IS ACCOMPANIED BY A TABULATION OF ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF EACH OF THE MAP UNITS. /AUTHOR/
