Alluvial Deposits in Iowa

Metadata Updated: July 19, 2013

This coverage maps alluvial deposits throughout Iowa. This generally would include areas of alluvial soils associated with modern streams that are identified on 1:100,000 scale county topographic maps. However, it also includes areas associated with glacial outwash streams from Wisconsinan-age glaciers. Both loess-covered and non loess-covered stream terraces and benches are included as alluvial deposits. In general, these deposits would outline alluvial aquifers, although in some areas the sand and gravel may be thin or unsaturated. Mapping was done on 1:100,000 county maps using the modern county soil survey. In some instances, 1:24,000 topographic maps were used where the interpreter felt it useful. The Des Moines Lobe area was all mapped with the aid of 1:24,000 maps.

It resides in the Natural Resources Geographic Information System library.

Comments on this data are invited and the Department would appreciate that documented errors be brought to staff attention. The development of the coverages in the NRGIS Library represents a major investment of staff time and effort. As a professional responsibility, we expect that the Iowa DNR will receive proper credit when you utilize these GIS coverages and that the original documentation will remain with any redistribution of these coverages.
