The collection consists of wire-line logs for approximately 20,000 oil and gas wells in West Virginia. The number and type of logs available varies from well to well Paper copies of geophysical logs from oil and gas wells
X-rays and xeroradiographs of marine and estuarine sediment cores collected in Maryland, taken prior to core extrusion. Cores, generally obtained using gravity or box coring equipment, are usually 1-2 m long. This collection has not yet been fully inventoried or cataloged. Need to coordinate cores and all data derived from cores; need to determine best way to store x-rays to preserve them.
Unpublished reports, usually associated with a specific project involving Maryland Geological Survey (MGS) staff. Generally, these are file reports or open-file reports that meet the terms of a grant or contract but are not otherwise distributed or included in the MGS List of Publications. They are commonly, but not necessarily, associated with a particular collection(s). Reports, both paper and digital, need to be collected in a central location, organized, catalogued, and archived. Eventually, they should all be digitized/scanned and be made available electronically.
Collection of Cores and Sediment Grab Samples collected from Maryland Chesapeake Bay and Tributaries
To date, the collection consists of about 4,200 unprocessed, surficial sediment (grab) samples collected by Maryland Geological Survey (MGS) from the bottom of the Maryland Chesapeake Bay and its major subestuaries between 1976-1984, as part of the Chesapeake Bay Earth Science Study (CBESS), a multidisciplinary research effort authorized by Maryland and Virginia through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). MGS collected samples according to two sampling schemes, mid-bay and nearshore, and then processed them to develop a baseline inventory of certain physical and geochemical characteristics of bay bottom sediments, in particular, water content, grain size composition, and carbon and sulfur content.

This collection currently contains approximately 24,000 oil- and gas- related surface samples, which is a subset of the 507,000 surface samples housed at the Alaska Geologic Materials Center. The Amoco Heritage Collection was donated by Amoco-BP in 2002 and contains samples from fieldwork conducted from 1960-1990 in high energy-resource-potential areas of Alaska.
field notes taken by Survey coal geologists. The collection is limited to work done by the Survey's coal section. Other sections data are less well curated, if at all. Books are 100 pages long with hard, black covers. This collection dates from the early 1970s. There are other collections of older field books of dubious value. field books describing surface exposures within West Virginia
This collection contains cuttings from stratigraphic tests drilled in the Jackson Purchase region of Kentucky during the U.S. Geological Survey / Kentucky Geological Survey geologic mapping program between 1960 and 1978. Physical samples are stored at the KGS Earth Analysis Research Library.
Geochemistry analyses from various projects at the Kentucky Geological Survey
The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) Mining District Files (also known as NVGEODEX) is a collection containing over 30,000 items consisting of about 150,000 pages of correspondence, reports, maps, assays, datasets, photographs, newspaper clippings, journal articles, company reports, and government publications. The media is paper, linen, vellum, mylar, cardboard, microfilm and fiche, and photographic paper. This database is the electronic index of the entire collection. Most of the items were scanned as TIFs and converted to PDFs for internet availability. Access is through the NBMG main website at http://www.nbmg.unr.edu, followed by clicking on 1). "Minerals & Energy", 2). "Mining", and 3). "Nevada Mining...
This is a digital data base of all coal and associated lithologic data available to the Survey in West Virginia digital version of coal stratigraphic data base (collection 9 in this survey)
A collection of well cuttings from the State of Indiana with a few from surrounding states. The well cuttings are filed in small envelopes identified with pertinent information and are stored in boxes in the basement of the Indiana Geological Survey. Each box has a file number which links it to other types of information. In addition to the archived cuttings, 80% of the cuttings are mounted on lithologic strip logs. The cuttings are glued on the strip log according to their correct depth. This gives the user the option to look at either the strip log or the actual well cuttings. There are 13,455 archived wells in the Indiana Geological Survey rock cuttings collection. This collection takes up approximately 15,000...
Continuously cored holes for coal and coal bed methane exploration; holes from poorly known or subsurface areas saved for future research
Geoscientific collections managed by Montana Geological Survey are aggregated in the National Digital Catalog to enhance discovery and use of valuable samples and data for further scientific research. Contact information and material access instructions are provided for the individual collections.
Rolls of seismic profiles obtained from the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay as part of projects funded by the U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), respectively. Rolls are either original thermal printer paper or photographic copies. In addition to the specified uses of the collection, another possible use is sand/gravel evaluation. This collection has not yet been fully inventoried or cataloged.
Collection includes 31 lithologic logs recorded in nine Maryland Coastal Plain counties plus one from the Virginia Coastal Plain. Records consist of paper strip with depth, sample description and cuttings glued to strip (logs). Collection includes approximately 20 Washington Gas Light Company lithologic logs (also includes geophysical logs) for a gas storage project in Prince George's County.
Geoscientific collections managed by New Hampshire Geological Survey are aggregated in the National Digital Catalog to enhance discovery and use of valuable samples and data for further scientific research. Contact information and material access instructions are provided for the individual collections.
Static metadata (current to August 2018) of Minnesota's borehole geophysical log collection maintained by the Minnesota Geological Survey. This collection is web-accessible through the MGS Open Data Portal at https://z.umn.edu/borehole_geo, where users can obtain the most up-to-date information pertaining to old and new borehole geophysical logs and download corresponding PDF and LAS files for each log (if available). The Borehole Geophysical Database (BGD) is a collection of over 7000 borehole geophysical logs of water wells and drill holes throughout Minnesota. Database collections reside at the Minnesota Geological Survey (MGS) and are continually maintained and expanded upon by MGS staff as part of MGS mapping...
The Utah Geological Survey GeoData Archive System contains Utah geologic- and wetlands-related scanned documents, photographs (except aerial), and other digital materials (resources) from our files, and those gathered from other agencies or organizations in one easy-to-use web-based system. Resources available to general users are all in the public domain and may contain reports submitted to state and local governments as part of permit reviews (and as a result are in the public domain). Metadata describing each resource is searchable, along with spatial searching for resources that are local or site-specific in nature (Geographic Search link in Simple Search pane). Resources representing counties, regional areas,...
This is a collection of over 14,000 physical sediment samples that accompany the gamma-ray logs. There are an estimated 2168 sample sets. The samples are stored in whirl bags labeled with the unique gamma-ray log number and depth of sample. The bags are stored in core boxes labeled with the unique gamma-ray number and range of depth. The number of samples per log primarily depends on the depth of the log. Due to poor original storage methods many samples were lost, therefore there are close to 800 gamma-ray logs without available physical samples.
