Abstract

The preliminary design and cost estimates for a Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) are now being prepared by physicists from the national laboratories and the university community. The Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) was asked to determine site suitability from a geological perspective. This report constitutes a preliminary compilation of existing geologic maps, reports, and other readily available geologic data. Maps and cross sections have been specifically prepared to focus on the geologic units relevant to ring siting; gelogic units have been described and characterized to a geologically and economically practical depth (about 600 ft left bracket 180 m right bracket ). These data provide a provisional base for determining overall geologic suitability for locating an accelerator up to 30 miles (48 km) in diameter. The report indicates problem areas as well as areas and geologic units that appear most suitable for the ring.
