Scientific Investigations Reports (SIR)

The SIR numbered series was begun in 2004, replacing the discontinued series, Water-Resources Investigations Reports (WRIR).

As was the case with Water-Resources Investigations Reports, interpretive reports not published in one of the formal report series, such as Professional Papers, Hydrologic-Investigations Atlases, or Circulars, are published as Scientific Investigations Reports. Most non-interpretive water-resources reports (mainly reports of hydrologic data) are published as open-file reports.
