The Virginia Coastal Plain Hydrogeologic Framework
A refined descriptive hydrogeologic framework of the Coastal Plain of eastern Virginia provides a new perspective on the regional ground-water system by incorporating recent understanding gained by discovery of the Chesapeake Bay impact crater and determination of other geological relations. The seaward-thickening wedge of extensive, eastward-...McFarland, Randolph E.; Scott, Bruce T.
