Decision Makers Field Guides

From 2001 to 2009, the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources joined with several state and local governmental agencies and organizations to conduct a series of field conferences for influential New Mexico decision makers. The purpose of these conferences was to present decision makers with the opportunity to learn first-hand about geological problems, opportunities, and potential solutions from some of the state's top experts, and to hear impartial (or at least balanced) opinions regarding current scientific knowledge about these matters.

The conferences were accompanied by field guides, which contain a series of short articles written by noted authorities. The books provide a timely look at issues that affect every New Mexican, and remain a valuable educational resource long after the conferences are over. The guidebooks from all the conferences to date are available to the public as inexpensive printed books and as free PDF files.

Some publications, including those that are out-of-print, are only available for purchase on CD or DVD-ROM CD icon.
