dc.description.abstractThe Geologic Map of the Southeast Part of the Austin, Texas, 30 x 60 Minute Quadrangle: Central Texas Population Corridor Encompassing Bastrop and Smithville, scale 1:100,000, was constructed through digital compilation of eight 1:24,000-scale open-file geologic maps. The map is intended to be used by professionals and laypersons as a source of general geologic information that relates to land and resource use and management. Geology of the area consists mostly of Paleocene through Eocene mud- and sand-rich units. Minor Upper Cretaceous marine marl and calcareous mud deposits are in the western study area. Quaternary high-gravel deposits and well-defined terrace deposits of the Colorado River also occur. Bedrock units typically exhibit eastward regional dips of less than 2°. In the west and east parts of the study area, northeast-striking normal faults cut strata. Aquifer units include the Carrizo-Wilcox, Queen City, and Sparta. Resources include sand, gravel, clay, lignite, and oil.
