The collection of hand samples was obtained from projects of the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) related to the construction of water and sewer lines, throughout mainly the eastern part of the state. The collection consists of 525 hand samples from which thin sections (525) were made; in addition, there are 21 boxes containing approximately 2 pound, hand samples from work on the Cosgrove Tunnel Project. The samples were collected by Father James Skehan and each chunk of rock has an identifier painted on it, referring to the station location. The thin sections and the hand samples are stored in cardboard boxes, on pallets, at the Record Center, on Deer Island in Boston Harbor. The condition of the collection...

Most projects conducted by the MWRA have attached to them a geotechnical report and accompanying environmental information. There are also eighteen marine drilling reports on work in the Boston Harbor, as well as, two hardbound copies on the Geology of the Waschusett Reservoir Area. All reports are stored in the library at the main facility in Chelsea; however, not all project managers turn over reports to the librarian for storage.

This collection consists of "Geologic and Seismic Investigation" reports along existing and/or proposed state roads and interstates. These were prepared as part of a USGS cooperative program with the then-called Massachusetts Department of Public Works (MDPW) in the 1960's. These investigations and reports were prepared by geologists such as R.N. Oldale, C.R. Tuttle and L.W. Currier. The seismic data consists of seismic refraction profiles. The reports are stored at MHD headquarters in the Transportation Building at 10 Park Plaza, Boston. This collection consists of many "Geologic and Seismic Investigation" reports along existing and/or proposed state roads and interstates. These were prepared as part of a USGS...

This inventory contains a listing of maps, field sheets, notes, papers, figures, pictures and other unpublished geologic materials contained in flat file drawers accumulated by Professor Peter Robinson between about 1960 and 1990 in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It contains indvidual items from Australia and New Zealand but mostly items related to the geology of Massachusetts. This data set consists of an Excel spreadsheet containing the flat file drawer number where materials can be found followed by a category or title for the material contained in the flat file, an item number, which identifies the items order within the flat file drawer, a description of the item,...

The collection of drilling/completion reports is maintained by the Department of Conservation and Recreation. It contains well completion reports for new water supply and irrigation wells as well as permanent monitoring wells and ground source heat pump wells. Compilation of the reports began began in the 1960's. The reports have lithology descriptions and there are estimated to be 350,000 reports. This collection of Drilling/Completion Reports is maintained by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). It contains well completion reports prepared by well drillers installing new water supply and irrigation wells as well as permanent monitoring wells and ground source heat pump wells. The collection of...

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.
