Colorado Geological Survey unveils new website and Facebook page

published Apr 3, 2012 10:12am

Please visit our new website. It is loaded with data and free goodies. For instance, 227 of our out-of-print publications can be downloaded for free in PDF format. A newly-designed, map server allows you to view several statewide maps of interest. Our online Niobrara tool allows the determination of depth to Niobrara and thickness of the Pierre shale at any point in the Denver Basin underlying the Denver basin aquifers. A high-resolution image gallery (not quite complete) contains downloadable files of geologic interest around the state. Free stuff for teachers and kids. All of our past RockTalks are posted online.

The website is a work in progress, so check back often. One of the things in progress is the posting of all 1:24,000 geologic maps in Colorado on the website for free download. AND, be sure and check out our Facebook page. You don't have to be a Facebook member to visit. Simply click on one of the Facebook icons on the home page to see what's happening today at CGS. We post news notes, historical notes, and "did you knows" daily.
