Three-dimensional geologic framework maps are a fundamental data source for modeling changes over time, managing risk to life-safety, public and private infrastructure, and economic welfare (Figure 1). In 2021, the California governor and legislature approved funding for the California Geological Survey to develop a multibenefit 3D geologic framework mapping pilot project (3D Geo) to support the state in sustainable groundwater management, seismic hazard mitigation, carbon sequestration, and mineral resource evaluations. Through collaboration with state partners and stakeholder groups, the CGS developed a scope of work for a pilot project in the southern San Joaquin Valley based on the needs of project stakeholders and data availability, density, and quality required for 3D geological mapping and modeling. The project duration is from July 2021 to June 2024.
