      The Geology of Virginia CD-ROM project is a series of four CD-ROMs. This CD-ROM, Introduction and Geologic Background, introduces major concepts of geology with a focus on Virginia examples. Coastal Plain, Piedmont and Blue Ridge, and Valley and Ridge and Appalachian Plateaus address the local geology of those physiographic provinces in Size: KB. observations from Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina. COASTAL PLAIN MODEL DIFFERENCES AND REGULATION Several of the differences between the original RASA and CPM models of the Virginia Coastal Plain aquifer system have resource-management implications. In addition to representation of the Chesapeake Figure 2.

      THE GEOLOGY OF THE VIRGINIA COASTAL PLAIN. INTRODUCTION. The Virginia Coastal Plain is an area of low relief that slopes gradually from the Piedmont hill country to the ocean border, beyond which it is represented in the shallow sea floor that de- clines gently to .   The Coastal Plain soils of Virginia generally comprise recent marine and fluvial deposits. It is widely accepted that grain size, plasticity, and water content of the soil are indices that can be used to geotechnically characterize fine-grained by: 1.

Markewich, M. Pavich, M. Mausbach, R. Hall. An overview of the geology by physiographic province is provided below. Atlantic Coastal Plain. The Atlantic Coastal Plain Province is underlain by a wedge of unconsolidated sediments including gravel, sand, silt, and clay, which overlaps the rocks of the eastern Piedmont along an irregular line of contact known as the Fall Zone.

Large tidal rivers, such as the Potomac, Rappahannock, York, and James, flow southeastward across the Coastal Plain to the Chesapeake Bay, in turn, empties into the Atlantic Ocean.

Low barrier islands frame the Atlantic edge of Virginia’s Eastern Shore. The Coastal Plain is a terraced landscape that stair-steps down towards the coast and to the major rivers.

The Virginia Coastal Plain is underlain by a thick wedge of sediments that increases in thickness from a featheredge near the Fall Zone to more than 4, meters under the continental shelf. These sediments rest on an eroded surface of Precambrian to early Mesozoic rock. RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN GEOLOGY AND ENGINEERING CHARACTERISTICS OF SOILS AND WEATHERED ROCKS OF FAIRFAX COUNTY AND VICINITY, VIRGINIA By STEPHEN F.

Maryland has been called “America in miniature,†because the state embodies a wide range of our nation’s landscape features.

From sandy beaches on the Atlantic Ocean, across flat fields of the Coastal Plain on the Eastern Shore, to the rolling hills and tumbling rivers of the state’s central counties, and concluding with the mountainous terrain of Western Maryland, the Free State /5(9).

Virtually the entire geology of Virginia has been compressed, folded, thrust faulted, and telescoped so that most of the rocks have been moved from their site of origin and stacked like a shuffled and bent deck of cards.

The exceptions are the Allegheny Plateau and the Coastal Plain. Coastal Plain Rocks and Sediments The information contained on this page was adapted from Maryland Geological Survey's Geologic Map of Maryland ().

This information reflects geologic interpretations from over 20 years ago and do not necessarily represent an accurate interpretation of. The project will initially focus on a thirty-mile wide corridor along the western margin of the Virginia Coastal Plain, where formations of Miocene and Pliocene age either crop out or are situated at relatively shallow depths beneath the sedimentary cover.

Many of the highest peaks in Shenandoah National Park (including Hawksbill, Stony Man, and Hightop Mountain, just to name a few) are underlain by distinctive bluish-green rocks that were once ancient lava flows (Virginia is for Lavas!), and are part of a geologic unit known as the Catoctin Formation.

Geologists typically go to the field for their primary data, and field trips form a distinctive and critical component of the Geology experience at William & Mary.
