|Chicago's Urban Environmental Geology|
A Student Research Project
Earth Science Department at Northeastern Illinois University
Funded by the NEIU Student Center for Science Engagement
Objectives, from the
This project will engage three faculty and nine students to investigate relationships between watershed geology, water geochemistry, and stream characteristics for select urban streams in the Chicago area.
We will investigate relationships between stream and drainage-basin variables including stream gradient, discharge, velocity, oxygen content, and sulfur speciation in streams and adjacent wetlands, and geology of the drainage basin.
The team will characterize variations in these parameters, as well as investigate the effects on other aspects of stream morphology, water chemistry, and stream physical characteristics.

regarding maps for field use:
while we appreciate that you have been careful with topo maps so far,
non-laminated maps should not be taken into the field.
Please use the instructions below to download online maps --
you can print the segments of maps needed for field work; these paper copies
can be annotated/ marked/ written on/ etc. ... and reprinted as necessary!
