Updated aeromagnetic compilation over Lake Superior

New aeromagnetic compilations have been produced for the Lake Superior region. The compilations combine previously published aeromagnetic survey data and compilations available from the Minnesota Geological Survey, Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, Ontario Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines, Natural Resources Canada, and U.S. Geological Survey (see Magne

Updated aeromagnetic and gravity anomaly compilations and elevation-bathymetry models over Lake Superior

New gravity and magnetic compilations and elevation-bathymetry models have been compiled for the Lake Superior region. These data provide continuous sets of observations for geologic interpretations spanning political boundaries such as US States and the US-Canada border where bedrock geology is largely concealed beneath glacial deposits and surface water. These data are providing constraints...

Digital Data for the Geologic Map of the Central Beaverhead Mountains, Lemhi County, Idaho, and Beaverhead County, Montana

This Data Release contains geospatially-enabled geological data to accompany the Geologic Map of the Central Beaverhead Mountains, Lemhi County, Idaho, and Beaverhead County, Montana. This map portrays detailed geology of the central Beaverhead Mountains, printable at 1:50,000 scale. These data were collected between 1997 and 2017, and synthesized to provide significant new strati
