Publications of the Division of Geology & Earth Resources
We compile and publish geologic maps, which are basic tools used by geologists, civil engineers, and planners, and produce other types of publications that provide geologic information on a wide variety of subjects. Currently, the Division has about 140 publications in print and digital copies of all of our publications are now online. Our newsletter, TsuInfo Alert, is available electronically on this website; back issues of our journal, Washington Geology, and our newsletter, DGER News, are also available on this website. Our reports and maps are held in libraries nationwide.
Our publications list shows which publications are "in print" or have paper copies for sale. It also has links to the online versions of our publications. They are listed in chronological order under each series. Check frequently for additions. If you don't know the series and number, you can search the publications list PDF or the library catalog by author, date, title, publisher, or subject. The library catalog also has links to online publications, including those of other publishers such as the USGS.
