Publications

The Colorado Geological Survey has published many reports and maps throughout its history, beginning in 1908. Several have won national awards. Most can be purchased or are available as free downloads through our online bookstore.

Our bookstore also carries selected publications on various aspects of Colorado geology published by others. Some of our publications can be downloaded at no cost, such as maps, out-of-print publications, RockTalk, and Annual Mineral and Energy Activity Reports.

Our scientists also report on noteworthy discoveries in professional journals containing papers and abstracts.

The Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists awards the CGS its 2004 Journalism Award.
