This collection is comprised of digital, slide and print photographs taken during engineering geology, energy and minerals resource related field projects from 1970-2017. Eight percent of the individual items associated with this collection are energy resource related field photos taken by Charles (Gil) Mull and Rocky Reifenstuhl. The remainder of the records are mineral resource and engineering geology field photos. These photos document field sites, geologic features, landscapes and landforms from the various areas of Alaska. At the collection level for energy related field photos, there are approximately 43,000 photos and slides that still need to be culled, documented and archived. 98% of the photos are in digital...

This collection contains test-hole cores through surficial sediments and shallow bedrock drilled by the Nebraska Geological Survey (Conservation and Survey Division), the Nebraska Department of Roads, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and other organizations, including bedrock cores drilled by petroleum and mineral concerns. A portion of the cores in this collection originated from oil producing areas and areas with potential petroleum development within the Panhandle region of western Nebraska. These cores were drilled by oil companies between 1950-1969 and were later donated to the Nebraska Geological Survey (Conservation and Survey Division). With the assistance of the National Geological and Geophysical...

This collection is comprised of digital, slide and print photographs taken during minerals related field projects from 1970-2015. There are approximately 35,800 photos and slides that need to be culled, documented and archived. 81% of the photos are in digital format and most need to be manually matched with their locations from geologists’ field notes, although a small percentage have locations and descriptions that could easily be archived. The remaining 19% are slide and print format that need the same attention but are in fair to good condition for scanning purposes. There are 50 videos that are also part of this collection. These photos document field sites, geologic features, landscapes and landforms from...

Library collection of 34 out-of-print Biennial Reports of the Commissioners of the State Geological and Natural History Survey to the Governor and State Legislature of Connecticut. These historic reports chronicle the legacy and evolution of the State Geological and Natural History Survey of Connecticut from its inception in 1903 until it became an entity of the state environmental agency in 1971. This collection include 682 pages of text, 18 figures, 9 plates, and 2 map sheets. These reports are valuable to science historians, academic scholars, geoscience professionals, and public policy experts. A related Connecticut Survey Library collection contains associated historic correspondence. Although most of the...

This collection includes depth-to-water measurements for Kansas aquifers, primarily the High Plains aquifer. The groundwater level measurement data are available in the WIZARD Water Well Levels Database.
thumbnail
Collection consists of paper and electronic files of data from individual wells and springs that have been tested for water quality as part of an ongoing statewide assessment of ground-water quality. Data from the collection is documented in publications and annual administrative reports. Much of the data is in USGS WATSTORE database; some exists only in paper and spreadsheet format at Maryland Geological Survey.

The collection consists of (a) approximately 50 field notebooks from geologic mapping, including field maps showing outcrop locations corresponding to the field notes and in some cases draft copies of quadrangle geologic maps, (b) approximately 20 notebooks and associated sample location maps from the Chesapeake Bay Earth Science Study (CBESS), and (c) 1 notebook from the Hart-Miller Island Monitoring Study. Some notes are in pencil and may be difficult to read.

The collection consists of Excel files describing each aquifer test, containing raw data, plots, and calculations of hydraulic properties (Coastal Plain only) and list of references associated with the collection. 262 well locations currently have digital aquifer test data (345 well locations have hydraulic properties described in published report). Aquifer (pump) tests, Maryland Coastal Plain. 1.The collection is essential for the evaluation of the sustainability of ground water in the Maryland Coastal Plain, and it is used as criteria to determine the quantity of ground water in a ground water appropriation permit license. 2.The long-term goal is to incorporate pump tests from non-Coastal Plain provinces/Piedmont...
This collection contains sites with vertical seismic profile data, including shear wave and P-wave components. The sites are located primarily in the New Madrid Seismic Zone in western Kentucky and surrounding states.

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...

This collection includes unpublished maps in Arizona, which were compiled for uranium resource assessment, conducted in 1980. Collection includes National Uranium Resource Assessment (NURE) compilation project maps. This collection has not yet been cataloged. Please contact the Arizona Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

Collection includes file folders for boreholes, mostly water wells, drilled in Arizona. Information in folders is variable and includes driller's logs, e-logs, registration forms. This collection has not yet been cataloged. Please contact the Arizona Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

This collection includes glass thin sections of rocks, and a few polished sections. These thin sections were obtained mostly from samples collected for lithologic characterization in connection with mapping projects conducted in Arizona. This collection has not yet been cataloged. Please contact the Arizona Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

This dataset is a collection of unpublished geologic field maps and transfer maps that represent over 100 years of field data collected by Virginia geological survey staff. These field records include hand-drawn notes, strike and dip, contacts, economic, structure and paleo information. Some maps have been scanned and are available digitally. Most maps are located in our Charlottesville, Va offices in paper format. All are unique, one-of-a-kind documents.
