Collection of reports containing from one to up to several hundred pages and water well files related to the MX Missile Project of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The collection is in 2 4-drawer filing cabinets. The geologic/hydrologic reports are kept at the NBMG, and some years ago, the cultural reports were sent to the Nevada Historical Society. The "Amount" is based on the number of reports and files listed on a typed index that may need revision. MX Files The area covered by the project is part of eastern and central Nevada. The collection is indexed by a typed list of reports and files in a binder, which needs to be reviewed against what is in the collection. The collection may be considered to become part...

Website of various Nevada geothermal resource information, which contains 227 geothermal site descriptions and related digital maps, photographs, and information sources. Geothermal Resources of Nevada Two NBMG geologists spend part of their time keeping up this database. Aside from the list of 227 geothermal sites which are linked to site descriptions and maps, the website also contains an interactive map based on NBMG Map 141, "Nevada Geothermal Resources," which shows locations of all significant occurrences of geothermal water in Nevada of which more than 300 are linked to site descriptions and/or databases accessed by mouse clicks; links to the files used to create the interactive map; a list linked to 82 large-scale...

606 reports and maps with pages varying from 1 to many hundreds. Most are private company engineering studies done for construction sites and commonly contain maps, soil and hazard reports, and geotechnical data. Some items are area geohazard reports some of which were used to compile some of the NBMG urban maps. Some items are private company water well reports. The items are cataloged and filed into three categories according to the area covered: 1) State; 2) County; and 3) 15' quadrangle. Each item has a unique written identifier. Site sources are in category 3, where the state is divided into 15' rectangles that are numbered. As part of this Inventory Project, these files were entered into the Open File Report...

Collection of paper aerial photographs and a few negatives. Most have been donated and the original sources include U. S. Geological Survey, U. S. Forest Service, U. S. Bureau of Land Management, Nevada Department of Transportation, U. S. Soil Conservation Service, U. S. Army Map Service, U. S. Air Force, MX Project, and private companies. Some were flown for the University of Nevada, Reno, and NBMG projects. The exact amount is unknown and is probably between 200,000 and 500,000. The collection is largely indexed by the organization that flew the photos and then by project. Aerial Photograph Collection Most of the projects are not complete. Most of the photographs are indexed by an assortment of paper indexes and...

An estimated 600 to 800 Federal Emergency Management Agency Flood Insurance Rate Maps filling 2.5 letter width filing cabinet drawers and covering most of the state. Some of these maps are likely out of date. Federal Emergency Management Agency Flood Insurance Rate Maps The NBMG has not cataloged and entered these maps into a database. The indexes used are the paper ones that came with the collection. The database and website noted on the previous page are for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which has most if not all of these maps on-line as PDFs. If it becomes obvious that all of these maps are available on line, this collection will be either put in deep storage or given to another agency. The staff level...
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.
