CHATHAM COUNTY GEOLOGY
THE LAND WE'RE ON
Geology is the study of the earth’s physical structure. The land we’re on—its shape, soils, minerals, water tables—has profound effects on our lives and our history.
Visit our Chatham Geology Exhibit to learn about the bedrock, landscape, soils, groundwater, mining and energy resources in the county.
