Government Information: Geography
Welcome to Alkek Library's Government Information unit. This guide was created to assist researchers who might use publications or resources published by the federal or state government.
Created by the University of Texas Bureau of Economic Geology, this source provides mapping of surface geology for the State of Texas. A print version of this resource, including accompanying guides for many of the regions, is available in Secured Collection at the Checkout Desk on the 3rd floor.. An online version of the maps is also available through the link; however many researchers prefer the print source.
This U.S. Geological Survey resource is helpful in identifying what USGS topographical map would match your research needs. No purchase is required, it is just a handy tool for identifying map quadrants.
Weather-related data sets: Local Climatological Data, Climatological Data, Hourly Precipitation Data, Storm Data, Monthly Climactic Data for the World, COOP Data/Record of Climatological Observations Form, Climatological Data National Summary, and other publications and documents.
Published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service, in cooperation with the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station. Typically, these reports are 50-100 pages in length and include numerous maps. Available in print on the fourth floor in Government Information. Online access to reports is also available through this record.
