"The disk is an electronic scanned image file of Edward D. Cope's 1877 monograph. This monograph represents the empirical study of vertebrate paleontology in New Mexico. The monograph is over 500 pages and profusely illustrated with fossil plates and geologic sketches. Cope was the geologist and paleontologist for the Wheeler Survey in 1874. The primary focus of Cope's fieldwork was the Miocene and Pliocene of the Santa Fe Group and the Eocene in what is now known as the Nacimiento Formation. He also made the first lithological observations for the previously undescribed "Post-Cretaceous", which is now recognized as the Paleocene Epoch. We annotated the file with video and audio recordings that reinforce the monograph's importance as the foundation of vertebrate paleontology in New Mexico. Cope's historic monograph is usually consigned to a library's rare book room. This electronic production in Adobe Acrobat provides a convenient desktop version."
"Vertebrate paleontology and geology studies in New Mexico thrive today in a co-operative spirit among universities, federal, state, and city governments. The current Middle Rio Grande Project by the U.S.G.S. is the most recent large-scale cooperative investigation. Partnerships were created with the New Mexico Bureau of Mines, New Mexico State Geology Office, and regional universities. Interdisciplinary studies focus on resolution of geologic time, lithologies, tectonics, from which will yield new 3-D modeling to better understand the primary sedimentary units affecting the Middle Rio Grande water supply."
"This CD-ROM contains digital data, image files, and text files describing the data formats and survey procedures for aeromagnetic data collected during three airborne geophysical surveys in New Mexico during 1997-1998. The Sandoval-Santa Fe survey covers the southern Espanola Basin and northern Albuquerque basins, including Espanola, the western part of Santa Fe, major portions or all of the lands of the Pueblos of San Juan, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, Pojoaque, Nambe, Tesuque, Santo Domingo, San Filipe, Santa Ana, and Zia, and minor portions of the lands of the Pueblos of Cochiti and Jemez. The Belen survey covers the southern Albuquerque basin from just north of Belen to Bernardo on the south. The Cochiti survey primarily covers Cochiti Pueblo lands, west of Santa Fe."
This book brings to life the epic march of 1,000 men recruited from Colorado's towns, farms, and mining camps to fight 3,000 Confederate soldiers in New Mexico. Drawing on a host of previously overlooked diaries, letters, and contemporary newspaper accounts, military historian Flint Whitlock, tells the stories of Union heroes such as Colorado governor William Gilpin and Colonels John Slough, John Chivington, Kit Carson, and Edward Canby, along with average soldiers - men on both sides who marched, fought, and overcame immense distances and privations.On their way to Colorado's rich mines in search of gold and silver for the Confederacy's dwindling coffers, Confederate leader Henry Hopkins Sibley and his 3,000 Texans won a series of engagements with Union troops along the Rio Grande until they were turned back by the ragtag, hastily assembled Coloradans in an epic conflict at Glorieta Pass, just east of Santa Fe. The western theatre shaped the fate of the West and of the nation, and its story is a powerful one of miners, farmers, and peacetime officers turning themselves overnight into soldiers and combat leaders.

Empire of Sand is the story of the Southern attempt, in 1862, to open a path to California, thus securing a port on the Pacific Ocean. The port would enable them to gain access to the gold fields of Colorado and California and expand the practice of slavery into the Southwest. This quixotic undertaking was attempted by a few regiments of Texas cavalry, known as "the Army of the Southwest, " commanded by the ambitious but ultimately incompetent Brig. Gen. Henry H. Sibley. Marching out of San Antonio and across the forbidding deserts of West Texas, the Sibley Brigade achieved initial success in winning a significant victory over the Union forces of Col. E. R. S. Canby at the battle of Valverde. They then traveled up the Rio Grande to capture Albuquerque and Santa Fe and to threaten Union possession of Colorado territory. A Federal force consisting of US regulars and Colorado volunteers, however, fought the Texans to a standstill at the battle of Glorieta Pass and decisively checked the Rebels when the notorious Col. John Chivington led a daring raid behind their lines. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
"This report contains digital data, image files, and text files describing data formats and survey procedures for aeromagnetic data collected during a helicopter geophysical survey in northern New Mexico during October 2003. The survey covers the Town of Taos, Taos Pueblo, and surrounding communities in Taos County. Several derivative products from these data are also presented, including reduced-to-pole, horizontal gradient magnitude, and downward continued grids and images."
"This CD-ROM is intended to be a “stand alone” product. It contains digital earth science databases for the U.S.Bureau of Land Management-administrated Caballo Resource Area. The Resource Area includes all of Sierra and Otero Counties, south-central New Mexico. The information presented here is not intended to be an interpretive summary of the geology and mineral resources of Caballo Resource Area. Instead, we present a digital source of information about Caballo from which the reader can, with the proper computer hardware and software, manipulate the data and draw individual conclusions and interpretations based on current need. Databases include digital Landsat imagery; planimetric map; geologic map; tectonic map; geochemical anomaly maps and location chemistry of all NURE sample sites; gravity, magnetic, and radiometric anomaly maps; location and character of all mines and mills; location and chemical analyses of mineralized rocks and ores; location and character of all sand and gravel pits and a derivative aggregate resource potential map. Each database includes a short introductory statement that describes how it was assembled, who assembled it, and the form of presentation."
