The authors would like to thank Jeff Zwinakis for his assistance with the computer graphics, as well as the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence (Massachusetts Military Reservation), Jacobs Engineering and CH2M Hill for providing access to the well samples and drilling summaries.  We would also like to thank Jacobs Engineering Geologist Don Melcher for hosting a visit to an active well site.  This report has benefited from critical reviews by Tammie Middleton, Jane Denny and Jim Robb (all USGS).

Some Cape Cod specific basemap data layers used in this project have been provided by the Cape Cod Commission and are available for download through the Massachusetts Geographic Information System (MassGIS) website. In addition, we would like to thank VeeAnn Cross and Dave Foster of the U.S. Geological Survey, Woods Hole Science Center for the creation of the Cape Cod geology shapefile included in the GIS Data Catalog of this publication.
