Field guides are a unique form of geological literature. A field trip can be a very technical exercise aimed at geoscientists, but it might also be an excursion led by geologists for non-scientists and families.
Every year in October, the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology celebrates Earth Science Week by leading a free field trip for anyone who wants to come along. The field guides are posted online.
Two NBMG Reports provide a guide to portions of the state not covered in other field guides.
