Stratigraphy of Alabama

Every state has a geologic map. The geology of Alabama is complicated and there are hundreds of different units indicated on the map. The map is accompanied by a slim book called Stratigraphy of Alabama, which has a brief description of each of those units. The Geological Survey of Alabama is revising this book, and I get to be a part of it. The revised book will, I think, have a couple of pages about each unit and will be a lot more useful than the old one. It will also be a lot more work, and I'm excited to be able to help. We only started recently, and I have no idea when we will be finished, but I will be sure to let you know.
