AZGS Publications 2011 – A Banner Year

Article Author(s): 

Michael Conway

With nearly 40 publications in 2011, this has been a prolific year for AZGS. We published 10 Open-File Reports and 16 Contributed Reports, most of the latter were legacy documents from the 1950s -1960s uranium exploration and mining boom of northeastern Arizona. Other active serials include: Contributed Maps (2 maps), Digital Geologic Maps (4 maps), Digital Information (one shapefile showing all mapped earth fissures in Arizona), and Digital Maps (5 earth fissure maps).

Maps and reports published in 2011 are available 24/7 at the Arizona Geologic Survey’s online Document Repository. Around-the-clock accessibility has greatly enhanced dissemination of AZGS reports and map products. By way of example, here are a few cases of particularly successful AZGS publications from 2011.

  • 2100+ “reads” since August 2011, Suggested Guidelines for Investigating Land Subsidence and Earth Fissure Hazards in Arizona.
  • 1600+ “reads” since May 2011, Breccia-pipe Uranium Mining in the Grand Canyon Region and Implications for Uranium Levels in Colorado River Water.
  • 1100+ “reads” since March 2011, Earth Fissure Map of Pinal County, Arizona.
  • 1000 “reads” since January 2011, Geologic Map of the Chino Valley North 7½' Quadrangle, Yavapai County, Arizona.
  • 700 “reads” since May 2011, Movement of Channel-Borne Sediments in the 2010 Schultz Fire Burn Area.
