There are over 1,000 individual logs from 394 different holes.

Thin sections prepared primarily in the course of field work and research conducted by geologists of the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, UW-Extension. There appears to be a set of USGS-related thin sections, as well, but these are not evaluated at this time. Original scope of this collection of material was not well known, but assessment of these items is continuing. Thin sections are tied to field notebooks, which are being reviewed as time allows. Certain physical collections have been located, but their geographic location is uncertain until the field notebooks can be tied to the actual thin section. We must tie physical materials to field notebooks in order to develop geographic coordinates...

These are splits from samples processed for textural analysis, geochemistry, color, and magnetic susceptibiity. These are a variety of sediment samples, including mostly subsurface samples, collected in the course of Quaternary geology investigations at the UW-Madison Department of Geology and Geophysics and at the Geological and Natural History Survey, UW-Extension. these samples were transferred to the WGNHS in the winter of 2009-2010.

Hand specimens of rocks collected as a part of field work conducted primarily by present and former WGNHS staff members. Entries include rock hand samples related to WGNHS research projects with adequate geographic location information. These are available in the National Digital Catalog as of September 14, 2010. Documentation supporting other individual items in this data collection is currently being developed. Each hand sample is tied to a field notebook. Accession lists for the had samples are available, but electronic versions of these notebooks are not available. Plans to integrate these into the existing master database of WGNHS data is under development. The collection includes some material that is tied...

This collection includes paper originals and photocopies of reports beginning in 1936, and PDF scans of these reports, up to 1995. In more recent years, this information is available from the Wisconsin DNR via a computer database. Materials are arranged by county and PLSS locations.

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
