MBMG Series Descriptions
(M) Comprehensive scientific reports of broad topical or geographic
scope that have wide and long-term importance. Included are reports
of mineral resource studies, hydrogeologic studies, and geologic investigations.
(B) Significant data and interpretations with lasting scientific interest.
Publications (SP) Compilations of interpretive works such
as conference proceedings and guidebooks.
Contributions (MC) Administrative reports, primary data tabulations,
directories, bibliographies, indexes, and catalogs.
Pamphlet Series (IP) Generalized discussions of the earth
Map (GM) Mapped areas and presentations on various geologic
themes. May include descriptive text, charts, tables, analytical data,
and stratigraphic sections.
Map (HM) Mapped areas and presentations dealing principally
with ground-water resources and investigations; may include descriptive
text, charts, tables, analytical data, etc.
Atlas (MA) Depicts geology, ground-water resources, mineral
resources, and other subjects in a portfolio format.
(R) Reprints of selected out-of-print publications.
(RI) Reports about narrowly focused areas of study.
Reports (MBMG) Manuscripts and maps that have not been through the final review process.
Some open-file reports eventually appear as formal Bureau publications.
Open-file Reports (GWOF) Manuscripts and maps dealing with various
ground-water issues in Montana that have been produced as ancillary
documents by the Ground-Water Assessment Program.
Ground-Water Assessment Atlas
(GWAA) Descriptive overviews and maps interpreting the ground-water
resources of selected areas. Maps are released as 'open-file versions'
until formal review is completed.
