Annual Reports (some with contributed articles)

Annual, Biennial, Triennial, and Quadrennial reports were sporadically produced from 1945 to 2002. Most of these reports discuss the status of extractive industries in New Mexico, our role in supporting the geoscience related to those industries, and may be of historical interest. Additionally, some of these reports contain scientific papers. These reports have largely been superseded by our semi-annual publication Earth Matters, and by other information posted on our website.
