We have launched our new website azgs.arizona.edu. Our old site, azgs.az.gov, is archived so that we can continue to draw content as the need arises. As we move forward, we welcome suggestions on how we can improve this site by adding fresh content, updating the presentation or navigation, and better meeting the needs of our stakeholders.
Serving multiple Arizona communities
This site serves several communities possessing discrete needs and interests.
- It serves the public, geophiles, decision makers, and local, state, and tribal authorities by providing foundational information on the geologic setting, mineral resources, and natural hazards indigenous to Arizona.
- The site serves the professional geosciences community, academicians, and resource groups by providing access to 1000s of published geologic reports, maps, and databases that can inform their research and investigations.
Several web features and content were moved directly from our former site, azgs.az.gov, to this new site. By way of example, see our King Copper page. It looks much like the earlier page, but now includes fresh resources and a bibliography of Dave Briggs (AGS Past President and Mining Consultant) articles on historical copper mining communities and districts; David Briggs Copper Histories.
New Web Features that should interest both the public and geoscientists
- AZGS Projects pages with regular updates on activities of our research team.
- Includes pages for: STATEMAP, Environmental Geology, Geoinfomatics, Earthquake Monitoring, Earth Fissures, and Outreach & Education.
