    Fringe depositional units : a way of tracing the modern transgression through geologic mapping
    (South Carolina State Library, 2011) South Carolina Geological Survey; Doar, William R., III
    Mapping of Coastal South Carolina at 1:24,000-scale and subsequent review of aerial photography produced conflicting interpretations of the marsh’s landward edge. Biologically the areas were identified as salt marsh in the photographs but geologically were composed of little to no modern estuarine sediments. The “fringe” unit was created for the purpose of mapping to address the potential conflict for what to assign the areas.

    Deformational and metamorphic history of Campobello 7.5-minute quadrangle, Tugaloo terrane, inner Piedmont, South Carolina
    (South Carolina State Library, 2011-03-30) South Carolina Geological Survey; Chan Soo, Rhonda; Wickard, Alyssa K.; Garihan, John M.; Ranson, William A.; Furman University, Earth and Environmental Sciences
    Campobello 7.5-minute quadrangle (CQ) is located on the Six Mile thrust sheet within the Tugaloo terrane of the Inner Piedmont Geologic mapping of fifteen 7.5-(1995-minute quadrangles in the Western Inner Piedmont of South Carolina by Furman University and the South Carolina Geological Survey personnel (1995-2010) has investigated the polyphase fold deformation, faulting, and metamorphic history of the region. Our mappin gtraces the sestructures into CQ.
