Because the NURE program was never completed, there is incomplete coverage for the United States. Out of a total of 625 quadrangles that cover the entire lower 48 States and Alaska, only 307 quadrangles were completely sampled and another 86 quadrangles were partially sampled.

The following is a list of quadrangles in the Lower 48 States for which no NURE HSSR data were found.

The following is a list of quadrangles in Alaska for which no NURE HSSR data were found.

No samples were ever collected in Hawaii for the NURE HSSR program. The following is a list Hawaii quadrangles.
