BIBLIOGRAPHY OF REPORTS BY U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY AUTHORS ABOUT THE WATER RESOURCES OF WYOMING

 

USGS INFORMAL BOOK AND MAP SERIES

Water-Resources Investigations Reports (WRI, WRI/OFR, & WRIR—variations of the same series)

The WRI numbered series was begun during 1973.  Prior to 1973, most interpretive water-resources reports were published as Water-Supply Papers, Circulars, or unnumbered open-file reports.

Between 1973 and 2004, interpretive reports not published in one of the formal report series (Water-Supply Papers, Hydrologic Investigations Atlases, Circulars, or Professional Papers) are published as Water-Resources Investigations Reports. Most non-interpretive water-resources reports (mainly reports of hydrologic data) are published as open-file reports. In 2004 the WRIR series was discontinued and replaced by a new series called Scientific Investigations Reports (SIR).

Between 1973 and 1982, the series identifier differed according to the source from which copies could be obtained.  If the report were available from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), U.S. Department of Commerce, it is identified on the cover and title page as a Water Resources Investigation (WRI).  If the report were available only from the local USGS office that produced it, it is identified as a Water-Resources Investigations/Open-File Report (WRI/OFR).  (A limited number of free copies of both types of WRI reports have been available from USGS offices in Wyoming.)  In general, reports without oversize pages or plates were identified as WRI, and those with oversize pages or plates as WRI/OFR.  Reports in the special series describing the hydrology of coal areas are identified as WRI/OFR (for example, WRI/OFR 83-545), regardless of publication date.

Beginning in 1982, reports in this series are identified as Water-Resources Investigations Reports (WRIR), and the sequence numbers are preceded by a "4" (except the post-1982 coal-area reports).
