Abstract : This environmental inventory provides information regarding the natural, cultural and economic resources of the State of Alabama. With emphasis on resources pertinent to water resource management activities, it is intended to serve as a reference source for the entire state useful in making development decisions (identifying opportunities and constraints), in evaluating environmental impacts, and in evaluating state and federal permit applications. Major topics included in the narrative and maps include physiographic elements, biological elements, and cultural elements. Under these categories, numerous resources are discussed and mapped at 1:250,000 scale. Information sources are included at the end of each topic. While no original research was conducted for this effort, the information contained in the Atlas is the most recent data available provided in a format which allows the user to pursue topics in greater detail from original source material.
