Coauthors helped to generate the final product map and ArcInfo coverage. Craig Wissler, professor at the University of Arizona, oversaw the automation and attribution of the actual data, while D.P. Guertin, also a professor at the University of Arizona, helped in assessing the final product and its further applications. Floyd Gray, geologist at the USGS, hired the work to be done as part of a 5-year project investigation of the fate and transport of minerals in the Patagonia Mountains in association with abandoned mine locations. Karen Bolm, also of the USGS, helped tremendously in the review of digital and manuscript data.
Beginning in March of 1997, the Preliminary Assessment of the Patagonia Mountains study area was undertaken. An integrated watershed analysis using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) based platform was undertaken to examine transport characteristics. The Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) and the Spatially Explicit Delivery MODel (SEDMOD) were chosen to assist in characterization of potential point and nonpoint source material yield within selected drainage systems.
This was done to provide information useful for defining areas of significant environmental impact and to shed some light on the most practical remediation strategies to be employed. Many studies have been conducted to determine different parameters, effects and contributions of human activity in the Patagonia and southern Santa Rita Mountains study area. Incorporation to a digital data model required acquisition of accurate geo-spatial digital soils data. This digital geospatial database is one of many being created by the U.S. Geological Survey as an ongoing effort to provide geologic information in a geographic information system (GIS) for use in spatial analysis.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
