Steve Brown, a Glacial Geologist at the Indiana University Northwest Campus at Gary office of the Indiana Geological Survey, works with Cartographic Specialist Rea Kersey on a map of the Lake Michigan Rim area of Indiana. The area's highly urbanized and industrial character and its unique environmental attributes create a variety of pressing environmental problems and concerns. In an effort to provide geologic information for a diverse community of citizens, regulators, planners, developers, park managers, and environmental groups, the IGS has undertaken the geologic mapping of this three-county area, which makes up the largest industrial complex in Indiana.
