National Geochemical Database—Reformatted Data from the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) Program

By Steven M. Smith
Version 1.40 (2006)

The National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) program produced over 900 published documents. These documents included Pilot Study Reports, Special Study Reports, Data Release Reports (by Quadrangle, Region, or State), Quadrangle Summary Reports, Research Study Reports, Progress Reports, Program Overviews, and Sample Collection Manuals.

During the course of this reformatting effort, several NURE documents were repeatedly consulted and found to be very useful. These documents were also the ones that were most frequently recommended to other users of NURE HSSR data. As a result, several of these documents have been scanned and saved in Portable Document Format. The following in a list of NURE HSSR documents that are currently available. Clicking on the links below will bring up the document in your web browsing software - provided that you have a Portable Document Format Reader Plug-In loaded. Alternatively, right clicking on the links below should bring up a menu that allows you to download and save the document on your own computer.

The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader or similar software is required to view these documents. If you wish to download the latest version of Acrobat Reader free of charge, click here.
