Digital Databases

  • Earth Science Remote Sensing Laboratory: This laboratory is part of a large number of interdisciplinary research projects funded by both national and international agencies. The spatial data from such investigations are available through our webmap services. These databases include geospatial data for hydrologic, geologic and groundwater studies focusing mainly on Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
  • Michigan Geological Repository for Research and Education: MGRRE archives well log and drill core data from historic to recent oil and gas exploration in the Michigan Basin, including water well cuttings from over 2000 Michigan community wells. Online data includes inventories of cores; cuttings; thin-sections; historic maps; oil, gas and bottom-hole pressure data; total production information and well log data and drill cuttings for water wells and water analyses.
