The Florida Geological Survey holds multiple geologic collections including borehole samples, hand specimens and fossil specimens. There are multiple sources of geologic information associated with these collections. See below for more information about each one and the data available.
GEOlogic Data Enterprise System (GEODES)
Information about our borehole and hand specimen collections can be found in GEODES. This includes location information, sample availability and lithologic descriptions.
Geophysical Information and Data Portal
In addition, DEP maintains a web application for access to the information for our collection of geophysical logs were scanned and are available through our Geophysical Log Search.
Information associated with our borehole samples is available though our interactive Map Direct focus. Additional focuses include: Subsidence Incidence Reports; Springs; and Aquifer Vulnerability.
The greenbooks are a collection of 150 green binders that are housed at the FGS. They are a collection of drillers' logs, paleontology reports, and lithologic descriptions associated with the boreholes in our holdings. A majority of the primary borehole data has been captured in GEODES; however, there remains additional information and resources in these books. These binders are now available via our Greenbook Index page.
The Florida Geological Survey holds a collection of 300 historic field books, which contain historic information about Florida, including topography, vegetation, and historic mining operations. Additionally, the books contain information about geologic sampling, drillers' logs, lithologic descriptions and laboratory notes. This collection is now scanned and available on our FGS Field Books page.
