Geologic Publications

NH Geological Survey

New Hampshire Geologic Survey publications include bulletins, bulletins with maps, maps, subject reports and Fact Sheets. Fact sheets are listed separately. Publications can be found using one of three methods below:

  1. By Category. In the "Complete List of Geologic Publications" Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol look under the category of interest and choose the publication needed. For example, if you are looking for a bedrock map of Hillsboro, look under the "Bedrock Geology" category and look for Hillsboro in bold, i.e., look for Geo-045-062500-BMAP: Nielson, D.L., 1981, Geologic Map and Structure Sections of the Hillsboro quadrangle, New Hampshire: color, scale 1:62,500.
  2. By Quad Tile Number. Using the 7.5-minute Quad Tile or 15-minute Quad Tile index maps below, find the map tile number that covers the area you are interested in. For example, if the area of Hillsboro you are looking for falls within 15-minute map tile # 44, you may want publication and map number Geo-044-062500-BBBM: Heald, M.T., 1950, Geology of the Lovewell Mountain quadrangle, New Hampshire: 29 p. with illus. and map. Then look for that map number in the "Complete List of Geologic Publications."
  3. By Index Map. Use the New Hampshire Surficial Geology Mapping Index and the New Hampshire Bedrock Geology Mapping Index to find the status of surficial and bedrock mapping to date. Refer to the lists of quad tile numbers in the left margin of the index maps, to find the map number for the map of the quadrangle of interest. Then look for that map number in the "Complete List of Geologic Publications."
