A current area of interest for the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping (NCGM) Program is coastal North Carolina (for more information, please see FEDMAP and the NCGM 2006-2010 Program Plan). One of the NCGM Program goals is the construction of digital maps and the use of geographic information systems (GIS) to explore and evaluate geospatial links between human health and geology, hydrology, and biology. Part of reaching this goal is improving the understanding of the geologic framework for ground-water resource assessments; to that end coreholes currently are being drilled in the northeastern part of North Carolina.
