The Energy Policy Act of 2005 established the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP) to preserve and expose the Nation’s geoscience collections (samples, logs, maps, data) to promote their discovery and use for research and resource development. The National Digital Catalog describes geoscience collections managed by USGS and state geological agencies.

Mineral Discovery Could Mean Billions for Michigan

For more than two decades, researchers, geologists, and investors had no idea they were standing above tremendous wealth. Thousands of feet deep beneath the surface of western Michigan, a potential multibillion-dollar potash deposit was discovered. Potash—a mineral salt containing high levels of potassium—is an ingredient in fertilizer essential for growing crops.

National Digital Catalog

The National Digital Catalog, hosted on the USGS ScienceBase data infrastructure, serves as a repository for metadata describing geoscience assets preserved by USGS and state geological surveys. Web links, access instructions, and uploaded files provide direct access to the digital and physical resources for scientific investigations.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-58, Sec. 351) established the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGDPP). The program archives geological, geophysical, and engineering data, maps, well logs, and samples. In additiona, they also provide a national catalog of archived materials and provide technical and financ
