Indiana Geologic Names Information System

Name Server

This Web site contains current information on the geologic names that have been adopted and are used by the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS). The site is intended to provide Web-based access to IGS geologic nomenclature to a broad spectrum of users from academia, industry, government, and the general public.

The Web site allows users to access information about specific units by entering a formal stratigraphic name, abandoned name, or miscellaneous unofficial name. Options to select units by specifying system and stratigraphic rank allow users to retrieve data for more than one unit and view the data in alphabetic or approximate stratigraphic order.
