New Mexico Geology

About NMG

New Mexico Geology cover
Current Issue: Volume 39, Number 1

New Mexico Geology is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal. Articles of original research are generally less than 10,000 words in length and pertain to the geology of New Mexico and neighboring states, primarily for an audience of professional geologists or those with an interest in the geologic story behind the landscape. Previously published in the journal, abstracts from regional meetings, theses, and dissertations (NM schools), descriptions of new publications, and upcoming meetings are now listed with links to these resouces on the NMG web page. Research papers and short articles from selected back issues of New Mexico Geology are also available as free downloads in PDF format. Back issues are also available in hard copy for a nominal fee.

Additional Resources

Past issues of NMG contained information regarding meetings, events, and service news. Most of this information is now readily available online from this and other sites and is generally updated far more regularly than our quarterly journal.
