Geothermal Wells & Springs of Utah

Utah Core Research Center Inventory
Contains the region’s only publicly available and most complete collection of geologic cuttings and core from Utah.

GeoData Archive System
Contains Utah geologic- and wetlands-related scanned documents, photographs (except aerial), and other digital materials from our files and those gathered from other agencies or organizations.

UGS Library Catalog
Search catalog by words or phrase, title, author, subject, keyword, series, or periodical title.

National Geologic Map Database (USGS outside link)
The National Geologic Map Database Project is a collaborative effort primarily involving the USGS and the Association of American State Geologists.

Oil & Gas Well Logs (DOGM outside link)
This database allows researchers to view scanned logs of Utah oil and gas wells.

Water Well Logs (DWRi outside link)
Conduct a well log search by Section, Township, and Range as well as by map search.



Utah Energy and Mineral Statistics
A web-based repository for energy and mineral data for the State of Utah.

GIS Map Data
GIS map data files are produced from published or open-filed geologic maps with a variety of spatial data which can include topographic features, geologic units, energy or mineral resources, and geologic hazards.

Analytical Data
Includes raw 40Ar/39Ar data, whole-rock geochemical data, and other technical laboratory analyses gathered in support of various geologic projects.

National Geothermal Data System (NGDS)
The NGDS is a DOE-funded distributed network of databases and data sites that collectively form a system for the acquisition, management and maintenance of geothermal and related data.

LiDAR Elevation Data
LiDAR data acquired for use in various geologic mapping and research projects. Landslides, fault scarps, and other features that are difficult to detect visually because of vegetation, access, or other issues, may often be clearly shown in LiDAR data.

Community Velocity Model (CVM) and Other Geophysical Data
To aid in producing ground-shaking maps, the UGS has compiled databases of shallow shear-wave velocities and deep-basin structures.
