  • Bedrock Geology of Indiana | Indiana Geological & Water Survey

    The study of Indiana's geology is commonly divided into the study of the unlithified earth materials that occur at the surface and the study of the rocks that are sometimes at, but mostly below, the surface of Indiana. The term “bedrock geology” describes the study of the rocks at and below the bedrock surface. There are several important aspects to Indiana's bedrock geology.
