Southwest Mineral and Environmental Investigations
Rapid urban development in southwest basins requires objective geoscientific data to produce informed land and water use strategies by stakeholders. The project integrates new and existing geologic, geophysical, and geochemical data and imagery to provide three-dimensional visualizations of the upper Santa Cruz River and San Pedro River basins, southeastern Arizona. Emphases are upon development of background/baseline information, a better knowledge of the aquifer systems, the distribution of metals related to mineralization and their fate in the surface and subsurface environments. These products will be used in resolving issues of water quality, riparian maintenance and other environmental impacts, and mineral resources.
