AZGS has posted 40 years of our quarterly newsletters Arizona Geology and Fieldnotes online starting with volume 1 from 1971.
Thanks to Extension Service chief Mike Conway and Web Master Pam Barry-Santos for pulling together this great digital collection.
The archive includes 40-years of Fieldnotes (1971-1988) and Arizona Geology (1988-2010) newsletters, comprising more than 150 issues. The articles are arranged by year/volume/issue and include the title of the lead article of each issue. Article topics range widely from geologic hazards – earthquakes, earth fissures, debris flows and floods, volcanism, and landslides – to economic minerals – copper, gold, manganese, uranium, oil & gas, and industrial minerals – to volcanism, geothermal resources, breccia pipes, and the origin of Grand Canyon.
Newsletters are written for consumption by the general public as well as the geoscience community.
