Collection of paper reports comprised mainly of IGS publications. A complete list of scanned publications can be found: https://www.iihr.uiowa.edu/igs/publications/search.
There are over 1,000 individual logs from over 450 different holes across the state. Holes include municipal wells, monitoring wells as well as deep and shallow drill holes. Logs collected may include: gamma, caliper, single point resistivity, self potential, normal resistivity, fluid temperature, fluid conductivity, flow meter - heat pulse, flow meter- spinner, optical borehole imager, and acoustic borehole imager. Locations of boreholes and PDF images and LAS files for more than 700 Geophysical Logs can be viewed at https://data.wgnhs.wisc.edu/data-pres-2018/ . New logs are added to this online map as they are added to the WGNHS sample tracking system, Geobase.
Cores represent over 2,000 individual core sites drilled across the State of Wisconsin; stored in over 56,000 (mainly cardboard) boxes; representing approximately 650,000 linear feet of the subsurface. The Flambeau Core subcollection is approximately 3 percent of the collection of rock cores from Wisconsin. Documentation for the Wisconsin core collection is routinely updated, as information becomes available.
This map set contains unpublished maps, cross- sections, and related information archived by the State Geological and Natural History Survey of Connecticut as part of the Survey Library Collection. These materials have not been reviewed for accuracy, consistency, or completeness. For many geographic areas, more current information exists, either in published or unpublished form. For the most part, these materials were developed under research and mapping agreements between the State Geological Survey and individual scientists, academic institutions, or graduate students. Some of these materials have been received by the State Geological Survey as donations. The veracity of the information contained within...
The Arkansas Geological Survey (AGS) is the curator for the Norman F. Williams Well Sample Library and maintains well cuttings and core samples as a permanent record of rock strata that have been penetrated by wells drilled in Arkansas. Driller logs housed at the Survey contain the down hole information about the geology in the state. Each log gives the depth in feet along with the discription of material being drilled and the depth it accurs. The logs cover wells drilled in the early 1900’s to 1950’s and dispersed throughout the state giving statewide subsurface information.
The New Jersey Zinc Company Historical Collection contains details of mining operations at the Austinville-Ivanhoe underground lead-zinc mines located in Wythe County in southwestern Virginia from 1902 to 1981. This site also operated under the name Bertha Mineral Company. The records pertain mainly to the historic Austinville-Ivanhoe underground lead-zinc mines located in Wythe County. The site produced zinc and lead from underground mines in the historic Austinville-Ivanhoe mineral district located in Wythe County. During this nearly 80-year span of continuous mine operations near Austinville, the company also conducted base metals exploration in other regions of Virginia, including the Timberville lead-zinc...
Bedrock and Surficial Geology, Bedrock Topography, Borehole, Environmental Geology, Aquifers, Groundwater Recharge areas and other Maps are published results of mapping projects. They are published as Geologic Map Series or Open-file Maps.
Roland D. Irving established the Lake Superior Division of the USGS in 1882. As head of the Division, Irving began a detailed survey of the Upper Midwest during which he pioneered the application of microscopic petrography. The Division laid the groundwork for all later investigations of the Lake Superior region Precambrian rocks (Dott, 2001). The raw data used to produce this influential work is detailed in the Lake Superior Legacy Collection field notebooks and ledgers. Scanned copies of the notebooks can be accessed through: http://data.wgnhs.wisc.edu/lake-superior-legacy/index.html.
This database contains a comprehensive inventory of geologic (coral, coral reef, limestone, and sediment) cores and samples collected, analyzed, published, and/or archived by, or in collaboration with, the U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (USGS SPCMSC). The SPCMSC Geologic Core and Sample Database includes geologic cores and samples collected beginning in the 1970s to present day, from study sites across the world. This database can be accessed through the CoreViewer 3.0 ArcOnline web mapping application, linked below. A copy of the data can also be downloaded from the web mapping application and the metadata is accessible through a link in the header of the application, as...
Rock cores from Wi - Flambeau Mine. The Flambeau Core is a sub-collection of WGNHS’s collection of rock core. It consists of 1490 boxes taken from 50 holes drilled in Anomaly 22 of the Flambeau Mine site near Ladysmith in Rusk County, Wisconsin. These core samples have been thoroughly inventoried, logged, photographed, and evaluated for pyrite degradation. Logs, photographs and other metadata are available to researchers upon request. The subject of an FY2015 data preservation project, this core is represented by much more extensive metadata than is the rest of the core in our repository. This data preservation work also resulted in re-evaluation of the geochemistry and petrography of the ore body in Anomaly...
Collection of aerial photos taken during April of 1930, of the area along the Delaware River from Port Jervis, NY to Biles Island, just south of Trenton.
This collection contains 53 New Jersey Zinc Company zinc exploration maps and associated soil logs. They span a large part of northern New Jersey in Morris, Sussex, Hunterdon and Warren counties. The maps are held solely by the NJGWS. At one time these maps and soil logs were the property of the New Jersey Zinc Company but were donated to the NJGWS when the New Jersey Zinc Company went out of business in 1986.
These are records of sediment cores from coastal Alabama. These vibracore (specifically pound core) were sampled in relation to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico for background analyses.
The Florida Geological Survey (FGS) has historically held geologic samples from bordering areas for better understanding of the regional geology. This collection includes cuttings, continuous core, and core chips from Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, the Bahamas, Cuba, and offshore. In the 1990s, a majority of out-of-state wells were returned to their home states if the state surveys wanted them. Additional samples were discarded if they were of poor quality or missing locational information. The samples in this collection include several samples that remained after this clean out process as well as some from recent projects.

Collection of 1979 color aerial photos of the entire state of New Jersey.
This collection includes rock cores from oil & gas exploration, public and private water wells, etc. IGS GeoCore tracks cores in the IGS? Rock Library. GeoCore stores depth intervals, storage location, and high-resolution photographs for each core stored.
