Hydrologic Unit Mapping in Georgia
Landers, Mark N.
MetadataShow full item record
Standardized definitions of hydrologic unit areas are available nationwide and are broadly used in watershed studies; however, these hydrologic units are too large to serve many water-resource investigation and management needs. A standardized, digital data base of accurately and consistently defined hydrologic units is needed for smaller watershed areas. Criteria for selecting watersheds as hydrologic units, and methods of delineating hydrologic unit areas are being developed and documented. Hydrologic unit areas in Georgia are being delineated and digitized for watersheds at each of two size levels smaller than the existing hydrologic unit map.
