THe collection consists of various series of air photographs taken since the 1930s Aerial photographs of various vintages
This collection consists of field notebooks, related maps, and photographs from former Tennessee Geological Survey staff, contractors, and students that worked on Survey projects. As of 2020, the metadata records pertain only to field notebooks and related maps; the photographs in the collection will be completed at a later date.
Locations of outcrops associated with geologic field data such as photographs, samples, analyses, type and measured sections.
In 1960, the Kentucky Geological Survey was designated as the official repository for oil and gas drilling records, along with well samples, under the provisions of Kentucky Revised Statute 353. This statute requires that samples of rock cuttings from selected oil and gas test wells drilled in Kentucky be saved. Samples submitted to the Kentucky Geological Survey are stored, cataloged, washed, indexed, and protected for immediate or future use. The well sample collection contains cuttings from approximately 14,850 wells throughout Kentucky.
Collection consists of glass vials containing heavy minerals from the sand-size fraction of approximately 250 samples of surface materials on the continental shelf. Specimens have been separated from the sand fraction by sieving and magnetic separation. Represents part of a six-year study conducted for the Minerals Management Service (MMS).
The Geological Survey of Alabama (GSA) maintains an extensive collection of more than 182,000 fossils. The GSA collections have been inventoried. The GSA continues to generate descriptive metadata describing the fossil specimens, including approximate sampling locations (county centroids are used). The valuable specimens in the paleontology collection have been amassed since the 1800s and are available for public research. Data capture and preservation of the fossil collection managed by the Geological Survey of Alabama is important as a research collection and helps in the studies of paleontology, paleoecology, paleogeography, stratigraphy, and geology.
These are crushed coal samples collected by Indiana Geological Survey coal geologist from Indiana coal mines and borehole locations. They represent various coal beds of the Pennsylvanian age. They are usually crushed to 0.8 mm size for mineral analysis and vitrinite reflectance measurements. Plastic jars of 100ml volume.
The Kansas Geological Survey maintains the state's archive of oil and gas well completion forms and other well info, such as drill-stem tests and drillers logs. This collection represents grant work from 2014 to 2020.
Rock core collection includes rock and sediment cores from coal, oil and gas, industrial mineral exploration, and Illinois Department of Transportation engineering borings in Illinois. The collection is part of the Geological Samples Library and the data is searchable in ILOIL https://www.isgs.illinois.edu/illinois-oil-and-gas-resources-interactive-map and ILWATER https://www.isgs.illinois.edu/ilwater
This collection consists of raw sample analyses of whole rock major oxide with minor element analyses on rock, soil, or stream sediments samples, as well as trace metal analyses. In general, the analyses include only those samples collected from projects involving Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) geologists or that appear in DGGS publications. However, many U.S. Bureau Mines and Bureau of Land Management publications and a small percentage of U.S. Geological Survey publications are also included. The database is continually updated as more data is collected and formatted for loading.
The collection consists of well cutting samples (both whole rock & cuttings) for Public Water Supply wells, private domestic wells, irrigation wells and mineral/oil & gas exploration test holes. In most cases rock cuttings have been collected on 5-foot intervals from ground surface to the total depth of the well. The cuttings are permanently stored in glass or plastic vials in core boxes at the McCracken Core Library. Roughly ninety percent of the collection has a strip log made of the well. Most strip logs contain the owner's name, well location (county,section,township,range), latitude/longitude (when know), driller's name, drill date, amount & size of casing, ground elevation at well site, total depth, formation...
Geoscientific collections managed by Indiana Geological and Water 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.
The Coal Mine Information System (CMIS) is a repository for historical coal mining information in Indiana. It was developed through a cooperative agreement between the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation. In addition to historical documents, prepared maps and reports, the CMIS has compiled digital geographic data and associated mine information such as workings maps, entrances and subsidence areas. This data is publicly accessible through an online map viewer (link below).
Seismic reflection is a profile of the subsurface obtained using surface geophysical techniques. These profiles delineate basement structure and structural features extending into overlying sediments. The collection includes: (1) a series of seismic lines run on the Eastern Shore in Kent, Queen Anne's, Talbot and Dorchester Counties, performed in 1976 by Seismograph Services Corp. for MGS and USGS, (2) a series of seismic lines run on the Western Shore in St. Mary's County, performed in 1976 by Seismograph Services Corp. for MGS and USGS, and (3) additional seismic reflection profiles for Charles County near Douglas Point (documented in the Preliminary Safety Report) and Prince George's County (documented in MGS...
Digital bathymetric survey products consist of (a) raw and processed water depth and water level measurements, (b) contour maps derived from the processed data, and (c) associated reports. Data and maps are available for Baltimore Harbor, the MD and VA coastal bays, and the following MD lakes/reservoirs: Liberty, Little Seneca, Loch Raven, Prettyboy, Rocky Gorge, and Triadelphia.
The Keystone Coal Industrial Manual published by McGraw-Hill provides critical information on where coal is mined, by whom, its qualities and quantities, modes of transportation and its major consumers throughout the United States. The Indiana Geological Survey has a library containing copies of these Manuals dating from 1918 to 2003.
The collection consists of polished pellets of epoxy-impregnated 20 mesh coal samples aproximately i cubic inch in size for coal petrographic investigationsThese pellets are used to generate basic coal data that is used in many derived products, including coal maps, publications, etc.
The Kansas Geological Survey maintains a library of 332,000 wireline logs. These files represent work done on the collection from 2014 to 2020, and has been superseded by a new collection.
This collection is comprised of petrographic thin sections, paleontological glass slides and various other processed samples including palynology slides, nannoplankton and other micropaleo slides, clay, kerogen and vitronite reflection sections, grain mounts, as well as residues and off-cuts, and pulps. These samples are derived from rock materials that have been donated to the Alaska Geological Materials Center.
