This report was prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey as part of the Gulf Coast Regional Aquifer-System Analysis (GC RASA) program. The GC RASA study area covers about 230,000 mi2 onshore in Louisiana and parts of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, and Texas. About 60,000 mi2 offshore on the continental shelf also are included because the aquifers extend beyond the coast line beneath the Gulf of Mexico. The study is limited to the Coastal Plain sediments of Tertiary and younger age, except for an area in the Mississippi embayment where Upper Cretaceous sediments supply ground water in parts of several States. The objectives of the GC RASA study are to define the geohydrologic framework, to describe the chemistry of the ground water, and to analyze the regional ground-water flow system (Grubb, 1984).
