In addition to conducting research in New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources (NMBGMR) laboratories, NMBGMR scientists work in the field to map geologic features and collect data about mineral, energy, and water resources. Data and samples collected in the field are also used in geologic and hydrogeologic research. In partnership with the University of New Mexico and the United States Geological Survey, the NMBGMR maintains an array of seismic instruments throughout the state. The NMBGMR collaborates with a network of partners to monitor public and private wells to assist with water resource management. As the geologic survey for the state of New Mexico, we are a non-regulatory agency that freely shares information with scientists, decision makers, educators, and the public, via the NMBGMR webpage and Facebook.
