This is a test metadata collection record. This is only a test.
This contain a zip folder of comma delimited (CSV) files for each of the 19 tables in the report. It is produced automatically upon compiling the R Quarto code. Column headers are difference than in the tables in the report but order is exactly the same. Refer to the report to understand meaning of the columns. Each cell of the tables contain a management index estimate or the standard error of the estimate.
The Core Research Center (CRC) was established in 1974 by the USGS to preserve valuable samples of the Earth’s subsurface for use by scientists and educators representing government, industry, and academia. The CRC collections include full-diameter rock cores, slabbed cores (cut in half longitudinally), well cuttings, thin sections, and associated analytical data. A majority of the material was donated to the CRC by private industrial companies, although some cores and cuttings were collected by the USGS and other government agencies. Rock cores were collected from roughly 9,500 drilled borehole locations representing approximately 610,000 meters (2 million feet) of subsurface strata in 35 states. Many of the boreholes...
Location data for exploratory, sciencific, or engineering borings conducted statwide since the early 1900s. Drill Core and/or other samples from a large number of these borings are stored in the DNR's Drill Core Library in Hibbing, Minnesota. For more information on the drill core library please vist the DNR's webpage: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lands_minerals/dc_library.html
The Coeur d’Alene district, near the base of the northern panhandle of Idaho, is one of the world’s larger lead- zinc and silver-producing areas. This collection of maps was created by USGS researcher S. Warren Hobbs.
Layered geospatial PDF 7.5 Minute Quadrangle Map. Layers of geospatial data include orthoimagery, roads, grids, geographic names, elevation contours, hydrography, boundaries, and other selected map features. This map depicts geographic features on the surface of the earth. One intended purpose is to support emergency response at all levels of government. The geospatial data in this map are from selected National Map data holdings and other government sources.
Geodatabase of locations of current and historic mineral extraction and exploration activity including attribute data. Web map interface to query and export locations, attributes, and references.
Earthquake-triggered ground-failure, such as landsliding and liquefaction, can contribute significantly to losses, but our current ability to accurately include them in earthquake hazard analyses is limited. The development of robust and transportable models requires access to numerous inventories of ground failure triggered by earthquakes that span a broad range of terrains, shaking characteristics, and climates. We present an openly accessible, centralized earthquake-triggered ground-failure inventory repository in the form of a ScienceBase Community to provide open access to these data, and help accelerate progress. The Community hosts digital inventories created by both USGS and non-USGS authors. We present...
This is a cool new dataset.
This collection consists of geological samples associated with the research of USGS Scientist Emeritus Michael J. Kunk. The collection contains rock samples stemming from Kunk’s earth science research in North America on geochronology, geochemistry, landscape evolution, volcanology, mineralogy, and structural geology. This collection contains four pallets of geological samples and materials.
This collection consists of Western Interior Upper Cretaceous ammonites and Inoceramids fossils with stratigraphic and spatial data largely from the Rocky Mountain region of North America. Data is primarily type fossils from the USGS Denver Mesozoic Invertebrate Catalog created and maintained by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) that as of March 2020 has been transferred to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Samples collected by paleontologist William A. Cobban during his sixty years of service within the USGS Paleontology And Stratigraphy Branch and Geologic Mapping Team. Approximately 14,595 fossil localities are represented in this collection. In a career that spanned almost 75 years, Cobban fundamentally...

This collection documents LAS files associated with various borehole geophysical logs saved at the IGS. The collection may contain LAS files created while “logging” a well or by digitization of historic geophysical logs.
The dataset consists of more than 3,000 sites in Iowa that contain detailed, regional alluvial stratigraphic nomenclature. The dataset is comprised of boring, dug pit, and cutbank descriptions predominately from the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist, but also from other alluvial studies, including those conducted by the IGS. The majority of these descriptions were first published in documents from the 1990s, but also included data collected in the 1970s and 1980s.
In 1967 and 1968 the USGS, in partnership with NASA and the National Park Service, extracted rock core from 13 locations in Yellowstone National Park. Depths of the holes ranged from 215 ft to 1,088 ft and the total drilled footage was 6,802 ft. The deepest hole was drilled in Norris Basin. Research on these cores provided critical understanding of complex geothermal systems that would inform the potential development of other systems, external to the park, as energy sources. These cores are extremely rare due to the many restrictions on sampling in the park. Years later, the cores were used to investigate the origin of some of Yellowstone supervolcano’s lavas using techniques that did not even exist when the cores...
Collections of physical samples and data managed and preserved by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The separate collections are managed by different projects and Mission Areas of the USGS. The collections are distributed across the United States, in various USGS offices. Preservation of some of these collections may be supported by the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program. USGS strives to publicly expose its materials, data, and other research to further scientific inquiry. Points of contact for individual collections may be contacted to request access to materials and data.
New version for 2023. This collection consolidates the IGS Oil and Gas database, documents, logs, and LAS files, superseding collections “Collection of Well logs from Idaho” and “Idaho oil and gas well data.” These files include information on current and historical oil and gas exploration wells in Idaho provided by companies to the Oil and Gas Commission from 1903-2022. This data was transferred to the Idaho Geological Survey in 2009 from the Idaho Department of Lands, who regulates and maintains data for recent/current oil and gas exploration in Idaho. The Idaho Geological Survey maintains files on two hundred fourteen oil and gas wells in the state. Some files contain drilling service reports, geophysical logs,...
These catalogs serve to identify known locations of mineral extraction and exploration activities discussed for the purpose of eventually discovering these data through the Mines web map application. These tables of information will reduce data entry time through use of queries to generate records. They also help identify properties without a clear location for efficient discussion with the original authors.
This ScienceBase community represents ReSciColl (Registry of Scientific Collections), formerly the National Digital Catalog, of the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP). ReSciColl includes metadata records describing geological, geophysical and biological collections and data managed by state geological surveys and USGS. These collections include rock samples, thin sections, field notebooks, photographs, maps, datasets, and others. Collections are described using metadata elements identified by the NGGDPP as important for discovering, understanding, accessing, and using physical collections. Contact and access information is provided for collections and individual samples to enable...
