C593_cover.jpg Circular 593 Procedure for Three-Dimensional Printing of a Digital Hydrostratigraphic Model
$5.00
Yu-Feng Forrest Lin,Shuheng Zhong,and Andrew J. Stumpf. 2016. 9 pp.

This publication explains the workflow developed to print a three-dimensional (3-D) hydrostratigraphic model of part of the Mahomet aquifer system in east-central Illinois. The model consists of three layers: the bedrock (bottom), the Mahomet aquifer (middle), and the overlying strata (top). The printing process used involved turning a two-dimensional (2-D) representation of each of the layers into a 3-D solid object by applying a series of conversions with GIS, virtual reality, and CAD technologies, including ESRI ArcScene, netfabb, and Meshmixer software. The result was a physical object that very closely resembled the virtual 3-D model, printed relatively quickly and at a low cost.

C589_map1_0.jpg Circular 589 Characterization of karst terrain and regional tectonics using remotely sensed data in Jo Daviess County, Illinois
$15.00

Samuel V. Panno, Donald E. Luman, and Dennis R. Kolata 29 pp., large-scale map, and digital appendix

Jo Daviess County in northwestern Illinois is part of the Driftless Area, which includes portions of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. Here, the soils and unconsolidated materials are relatively thin, and coupled with the highly fractured dolomite bedrock, create a geologic setting for a prolific karst aquifer within the region. During the extreme summer drought of 2012, mysterious vegetated lines began appearing in agricultural fields within Jo Daviess County. The presence of these vegetated crop lines was an ephemeral event lasting only a few months, and ISGS researchers responded quickly to document it. The results of on-site investigations and image interpretation of aerial photography acquired from June to October determined that the vegetated crop lines are an accurate reflection of the buried bedrock fracture system in northwestern Illinois, which had heretofore been restricted to direct observation in available road cuts, quarries, and bedrock outcrops. Digitized data sets of these vegetated crop lines can be used in conjunction with alignments of cover-collapse sinkholes and mine diggings to better characterize the geometry and character of the karst aquifer within the Driftless Area of northwestern Illinois, and to better understand the regional tectonics of Illinois and nearby states.

C585-Cover.png Circular 585 A Manual for Conducting Preliminary Environmental Site Assessments for Illinois Department of Transportation Infrastructure Projects
$10.00

Anne L. Erdmann, Daniel J. Adomaitis, Phyllis L. Bannon-Nilles, Gregory A. Kientop, and Dale R. Schmidt 2014. 36 pp.

Environmental site assessments (ESAs) have become an important component of real estate transactions, especially for commercial and industrial property. Through the Illinois Department of Transportation’s (IDOT) infrastructure improvement programs, IDOT often must acquire properties that have the potential for environmental concerns. Various recognized environmental conditions (RECs), natural features, and natural hazards may be present on existing IDOT right-of-way or on sites proposed for acquisition. The Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) has developed for IDOT a site assessment program that provides information on environmental conditions associated with highway or other transportation projects. These site assessments are referred to as Preliminary Environmental Site Assessments (PESAs), as they differ from industry-standard ESAs or All Appropriate Inquiry reports as defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This manual describes the procedures used by the ISGS in evaluating environmental conditions that may impact IDOT infrastructure projects. Originally published by ISGS in 1996 as ISGS Open File Report 1996-5, this second edition of the manual has been revised to reflect significant changes in the program since that time.

C583-cover.png Circular 583 A Depositional and Diagenetic Characterization of the Mt. Simon Sandstone at the Illinois Basin - Decatur Project Carbon Capture and Storage Site, Decatur, Illinois, USA
$15.00

Jared T. Freiburg, David G. Morse, Hannes E. Leetaru, Riley P. Hoss, and Qina Yan 2014. 59 pp. and 3 digital appendices

The Illinois Basin - Decatur Project (IBDP) is a 1 million metric ton carbon capture and storage demonstration project located in Macon County, Illinois. Led by the Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium, the IBDP began injecting carbon dioxide into the Mt. Simon Sandstone in November 2011. As part of the IBDP, extensive core was taken through the Mt. Simon and into the Precambrian Basement. This is the first and most complete core to be taken at this depth in the Illinois Basin and to be described in such geologic detail. According to geophysical well logs and core taken at the IBDP site, the Mt. Simon Sandstone is divided into three major lithostratigraphic sections: the Lower, Middle, and Upper. A pre-Mt. Simon interval unconformably underlies the Mt. Simon and overlies the Precambrian Basement. Depositional and diagenetic interpretations are made and discussed in relation to reservoir quality.

C582-cover.gif Circular 582 Groundwater Salinity within the Mt. Simon Sandstone in Illinois and Indiana
$10.00

Edward Mehnert and Paula H. Weberling 2014. 23 pp.

In the Cambrian-age Mt. Simon Sandstone, salinity varies widely from less than 1,000 mg/L of total dissolved solids (TDS) in northern Illinois to more than 250,000 mg/L of TDS in southern Illinois. Salinity is an important characteristic of groundwater and is quantified by measuring the TDS. With recent interest in geologic carbon sequestration, new wells have been completed in the Mt. Simon and new TDS data have been collected. These new TDS data, along with other available data from Illinois and Indiana wells, were compiled and plotted to generate an updated map of salinity in the Mt. Simon Sandstone.

C581-cover.gif Circular 581 New Insights on Upper Mississippi Valley Mineralization Based on Solution Cavities in the Ordovician Galena Group at the Conco Mine, North Aurora, Illinois, USA
$10.00

Jared T. Freiburg, Bruce W. Fouke, and Zakaria Lasemi
2012. 46 pp.

This study examines the associations and origins of spectacular mineralization recently found in large solution cavities within the Ordovician Galena Group rocks in northeastern Illinois. Because of the economic importance of these Mississippi Valley-type minerals, geologists have long been interested in understanding how these minerals were produced and how to better predict their occurrence. In this study, field observations and high-resolution petrographic and geochemical analyses were used to reconstruct the timing, composition, and source of the diagenetic fluids that precipitated the minerals.

The results of this study have important implications with respect to the diagenesis (the chemical, physical, and biologic changes after deposition) of sedimentary rocks in midcontinent North America, including the Mississippi Valley-type mineral deposits. The study data help tie the diagenetic features in the Galena Group carbonates with potential diagenetic processes. Thus, the information in this study should help researchers as they develop predictive models of regional paleofluid flow and more accurate models for mineral and hydrocarbon exploration.

C580-cover-001.gif Circular 580 Age of the Winnebago Formation of North-Central Illinois as Determined by Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dating
$10.00
Richard C. Berg, E. Donald McKay III, Ronald J. Goble, and Hong Wang
2013. 15 pp.

This report provides results from newly sampled locations of the Winnebago Formation using optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating of quartz grains from sand. Eight OSL ages for the Beaver Creek confirm its late Illinois Episode (late marine oxygen-isotope stage 6) deposition as well as that of overlying Winnebago Formation diamictons. The mean pooled age of the eight analyses is 136,610 ± 3,780 years BP. Dates range from 150,000 to 128,000 years ago, with five of the dates clustered between 132,000 and 139,000 years ago. A single acceptable OSL date of 106,000 years ago from a kame atop Capron Ridge helps clarify the age of the Capron Member, but not totally; the younger than expected age is probably due to bioturbation or some other mechanism of mixing. Although this OSL date is not definitive, it does suggest an Illinoian age for the underlying Capron diamicton.

ISGS-C579-cover.gif Circular 579 Stereophotographic Measurement of Joint and Bedding Orientation at Thornton Quarry, Illinois
$10.00

Christopher J. Stohr, Justine Petras, Donald G. Mikulic, and Jason Thomason
2011. 40 pp.

Geological features such as joints, conduits, and bedding are known to provide routes for fluid movement through bedrock. However, data about these features can be difficult or dangerous to obtain because of safety considerations or inaccessibility. The circular describes the use of stereophotography, surveying, and close-range photogrammetry to make measurements of thickness, spacing, length, and bedding continuity along a 900-foot inaccessible face at the Hanson Materials Service quarry at Thornton, Illinois. Georeferenced data for dip and dip direction of joint traces were equivalent to results from previous measurements made by traditional methods. In addition, clustering and eigenanalysis of the data revealed a previously undescribed set of fractures parallel to the quarry face. Using close-range photogrammetry to measure geological features on inaccessible outcrops and quarry faces is economical and can improve safety, extraction, and subsequent use of quarries.

Circular 577 cover Circular 577 Sedimentology and Reservoir Characterization of the Silurian Carbonates in the Mt. Auburn Trend of the Sangamon Arch, West-Central Illinois
$10.00

Yaghoob Lasemi, Beverly Seyler, Zakaria Lasemi, and Zohreh Askari Khorasgani
2010. 33 pp.

More than 12 million barrels of oil have been produced from Silurian rocks in just the Mt. Auburn trend of the Sangamon Arch in west-central Illinois. Production has been from the dolomite reservoirs that occur in the upper part of the Silurian succession (Niagaran Series). This circular focuses on the Niagaran deposits along the Mt. Auburn trend of the Sangamon Arch in order to help producers understand reservoir development and predict occurrences of productive Silurian rocks in other areas of the Illinois Basin. The study was undertaken to determine reservoir facies types and to evaluate the occurrence, geometry, distribution, porosity development, and petroleum entrapment mechanisms in the Niagaran succession. Results suggest that the possibility is good for finding additional, potentially prolific petroleum reservoirs in the Racine Formation along the Mt. Auburn trend.

Circular 576 cover Circular 576 Groundwater Flow Modeling as a Tool to Understand Watershed Geology: Blackberry Creek Watershed, Kane and Kendall Counties, Illinois
$10.00

Edward Mehnert
2010. 24 pp.

This publication shows how analytic element (AE) models can be developed and used to describe complex watershed hydrogeology and geology, identifying areas with distinct hydrogeology. This type of information is critical to the scientists and planners who are working to understand the state’s critical water and land use issues. Geologic models alone are not always able to account for some distinct or localized subsurface features, such as hydrologic connections between aquifers. An AE model can be used to describe streamflow, groundwater recharge, and groundwater flow within a watershed, which also can reveal additional information about the spatial relationships of the geologic materials. The complexity of the AE model can be increased incrementally to further improve its accuracy.

2009. 92 pp.

This circular contains updated maps and statistics per county on the proximity of both coal and non-coal underground mined areas to urban development. The present study reflects newly available data and a revised assessment method. This study found that an estimated 333,000 housing units and approximately 201,000 acres of urban and developed lands are in close proximity to underground mines and may be exposed to subsidence. The work was funded, in part, by the Illinois Mine Subsidence Insurance Fund.

2009. 10 pp.

This circular describes the successful production of high-quality building bricks that use coal combustion by-products, alone or in combination with fly ash, in their formulation. The tests were undertaken to find productive uses for the 60% of coal combustion by-products that are currently disposed of as waste in the United States. The majority of the test bricks met the ASTM classification for severe weathering grade bricks; color, compression strength, and water absorption varied depending on the formulation. All of the fired bricks produced were environmentally safe construction products.

2007. 39 pp. CD-ROM.

Nearly half of the residents living in the karst regions of St. Clair, Monroe, and Randolph Counties in southwestern Illinois use the shallow karst aquifer of Illinois’ sinkhole plain as their source for potable water. This study was undertaken to better understand the sources and pathways of contaminants in the area’s wells and streams. The investigation used chemical and isotope analyses to characterize the quality and general geochemistry of the groundwater in the karst aquifer of the sinkhole plain region and to determine the dominant sources of anomalously large concentrations of nitrate in the region’s groundwater.

Circular 568: The Benoist (Yankeetown) Sandstone Play in the Illinois Basin Circular 568: The Benoist (Yankeetown) Sandstone Play in the Illinois Basin
$20.00

By Hannes E. Leetaru, Kristine Mize, and James S. Cokinos.
2005. 46 pp. $20.00.

This regional geologic study is the first of the Mississippian (Chesterian) Benoist sandstone (Yankeetown Sandstone), an important oil-producing formation in the Illinois Basin. The geologists used data from over 1,800 wireline logs to prepare regional structure and isolith maps of the Benoist and to characterize six individual Benoist reservoirs. This study helps differentiate the play into areas with high and low degrees of reservoir compartmentalization. Areas with complex reservoir compartmentalization may have the potential for infill drilling of oil that has been bypassed either horizontally or vertically. The results of this mapping study can be used by operators to find the structural and stratigraphic components of potential oil traps.

The project described in this report compiled and mapped regional Mt. Simon data from all wells in northern Illinois. The reservoirs of two Mt. Simon gas storage fields were characterized in detail. The regional structure maps of the top of the Ordovician Galena Group ("Trenton Limestone"), the St. Peter Sandstone, and the Mt. Simon Sandstone show anticlines that may have the potential as new gas storage sites. In addition, a new regional salinity map of the Mt. Simon groundwater shows that waters that are potable in northern and northwestern Illinois become brine-filled in the deeper parts of the Illinois Basin.

$15.00

By S.V. Panno, K.C. Hackley, E. Mehnert, D.R. Larson, D. Canavan, and T.C. Young.
2005. 51 pp.

This report summarizes the results of research undertaken by ISGS hydrogeologists and isotope geochemists on behalf of Illinois-American Water Company. Over a period of three decades, the company had observed progressive decreases in the specific capacities of most of its high-capacity wells screened in the Mahomet aquifer at Champaign, Illinois. Based on the study results, encrustations on the well screens were likely to have been caused by iron-depositing bacteria producing biofilms on the well screens that trapped transported mineral fragments, clay minerals, and newly precipitated calcite crystals. This process was responsible for the decrease in specific capacity. The scientists suggested that inspecting well screens of other problem production wells in the aquifer and collecting and analyzing samples of any encrustation should yield valuable information about the nature of the encrustation that could help researchers and companies identify appropriate remediation techniques.

2005. Circular 565. 34 pp.

This report presents findings of the first integrated study of the Illinois and Wisconsin sections of the Rock River and describes the fascinating and complex interplay of bedrock geology, bedrock topography, glaciation, and fluvial processes that formed the river. These factors produced a valley with five distinctive reaches: (1) the headwaters, which lie in an area once covered by the Green Bay glacial lobe, (2) an outwash-filled bedrock valley, (3) a bedrock gorge, (4) a reach that skirts the edge of the Bloomington outwash plain in the Green River Lowland, and (5) a lower reach that has been shared at various times with the Mississippi River. The report also describes the outwash terraces related to meltwater discharge from the Green Bay glacial lobe that are found on the river as far downstream as Prophetstown, Illinois.
