dc.description.abstractEnvironmental protection and enhancement of the natural resources of Army installations has become an integral part of the design, construction, operation, and maintenance activities on those installations. In 1975, the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station began a study to provide environmental baseline descriptions for use in the management of Fort Carson natural resources. The overall objective of the study was to demonstrate environmental baseline methodologies and to use these methodologies and procedures to collect environmental baseline data that were pertinent to the Fort Carson Long-Range Environmental Program. This report covers the general geology and seismicity of Fort Carson and shows how geologic and seismic parameters relate to engineering and resource management practices on this military installation.en_US
