Gravity data were collected during three separate campaigns during July of 2013, August and September of 2014, and September and October of 2020 at 168 sites on and around the Stillwater layered mafic complex in southern Montana. Measurements were taken with Lacoste & Romberg G-64, G-550, and G-161 gravimeters and reduced to obtain the complete Bouguer anomaly, with reference ties to absolute base stations at U.S. Post Offices in Spokane, Washington (2014), Billings (2013-2014) and Livingston (2020), Montana. This data release includes principal facts for 168 new gravity stations and shapefiles with field locations.
New gravity compilation has been compiled for the Lake Superior region. The gravity compilation includes survey stations available from Natural Resources Canada, National Centers for Environmental Information (formerly National Geophysical Data Center), Minnesota Geological Survey, and U.S. Geological Survey. Individual databases were combined and duplicates were removed resulting in a database of 63,880 gravity stations. The gravity station data were reprocessed from observed gravity to simple Bouguer anomaly following standard methods that depend on the station type (for example, land, lake surface, or lake bottom observation) and used a reduction density of 2,670 kg/m3. The compilation provides a consistent dataset...
This dataset contains gravity data collected in the Hinkley area in the Mojave Desert of southern California.
Principal facts of regional gravity data in the central Upper Peninsula, Michigan, and northeastern Wisconsin
Gravity data were collected from 2016 through 2019 to assist in mapping surface and subsurface geology in the central Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in neighboring northeastern Wisconsin. This data release provides principal facts for 1536 new gravity stations that were acquired to supplement existing public gravity data coverage.
Gravity data were collected in August of 2019 at 21 sites on and around Iliamna Volcano and Anchorage, Alaska. Measurements were taken with a Lacoste & Romberg G-161 meter and reduced to obtain the complete Bouguer anomaly. A total of 39 magnetic susceptibility measurements were taken at 13 locations using a ZH Instruments SM30 susceptibility meter. This data release includes susceptibility measurements, processed gravity data, shapefiles with field locations, and site photos.
Updated aeromagnetic and gravity anomaly compilations and elevation-bathymetry models over Lake Superior
New gravity and magnetic compilations and elevation-bathymetry models have been compiled for the Lake Superior region. These data provide continuous sets of observations for geologic interpretations spanning political boundaries such as US States and the US-Canada border where bedrock geology is largely concealed beneath glacial deposits and surface water. These data are providing constraints for on-going 3D geologic modeling of the Midcontinent Rift System and are helping to understand the metallogeny of the region.
Principal facts of gravity data collected in and around the eastern Adirondack highlands, northern New York
Gravity data were collected in 2016 and 2017 to assist in mapping subsurface geology in and around the eastern Adirondack highlands, northern New York, which host numerous iron-oxide apatite deposits. Many of these deposits contain rare-earth elements, which are considered a critical mineral resource. This data release provides principal facts for 189 new gravity stations that were acquired to fill in gaps in the existing public gravity data coverage.
