location plats, completion reports and driller's logs for oil and gas wells drilled within West Virginina. Approximately 25,000 of the early, pre-regulation wells only have location platsphysical logs are filled in 21 legal-sized filing cabinets

Continuous bedrock core from about 50 sites across CT. Stored in 1100 boxes. This collection has been rescued three times since its formation in the late 1980's. Formerly administrative responsibility was shared between the University of Connecticut Dept. of Geology and Geophysics (now disbanded) and the Dept. of Environmental Protection, Geological and Natural History Survey. The State Survey now houses the collection and is the sole administrator.

Hand samples collected from outcrops during field work by survey staff members and students. Hand samples were collected in the filed by various staff members and students. Only partially organized and cataloged in several different digital and paper databases. Metadata content of databases is not uniform. There are approximately 6500 samples cataloged in various paper and digital databases and several thousand samples that have yet to be either organized or cataloged. This collection is stored in trailers (mobile homes) and container units and is currently not fully cataloged, organized or accessible.

Minnesota Geological Survey maintains a database of over 4000 rock property values that are needed for geologic mapping, and are similarly used by partner agencies and by industry to support exploration. These data thus help relate geophysical anomaly signatures to probable rock types, and provide constraints on the use of anomaly data as a tool for mapping and for modeling geology at depth. Most of the density and magnetization data contained in this database were acquired over the last two decades as part of on-going activities. Paleozoic samples were collected from Iowa and included in the database because they provide a representative suite of data for rocks present, but not widely exposed in Minnesota. Additional...

Plant fossil, coal, coal ball, compression, spore, and pollen collections stored in the main Annex building cabinets. Paleobotanical Specimens - Annex Main. 364 drawers.
thumbnail
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.

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...

Collection includes Piedmont rock cores and Outer Continental Shelf rock cores. This collection has not yet been inventoried and cataloged. Please contact the Delaware Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

Fossil samples stored in the main Annex building cabinets. Primarily invertebrates collected by survey staff, this collection is a good representation of fossils from geographic areas and stratigraphic units in Illinois. The majority of samples are not cataloged; however most are physically arranged chronostratigraphically. Approximately 150,000 samples total, primarily Cambrian (1500), Ordovician (15,000), Silurian (17,000), Devonian (10,000), Mississippian (15,000), Pennsylvanian (77,000), and Tertiary/Cretaceous (100). Approximately 10,000 specimens are arranged by taxonomic group including brachiopods (7500), cephalopods (1000), and trilobites (2000). Paleontological Specimens - Annex Main A student is currently...

The oil and gas well cuttings collection consists of splits of cuttings from oil and gas wells. Most of the samples consist of small splits in small envelopes

Collection of reports containing from one to up to several hundred pages and water well files related to the MX Missile Project of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The collection is in 2 4-drawer filing cabinets. The geologic/hydrologic reports are kept at the NBMG, and some years ago, the cultural reports were sent to the Nevada Historical Society. The "Amount" is based on the number of reports and files listed on a typed index that may need revision. MX Files The area covered by the project is part of eastern and central Nevada. The collection is indexed by a typed list of reports and files in a binder, which needs to be reviewed against what is in the collection. The collection may be considered to become part...

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 large-scale...
