New England Geoscience Portal

Here, you’ll find a wealth of information and resources not just for geology (although we love geology here!) – but for geoscience, “aka” earth science – meaning – the study of earth! What kind of things might you find here for each state? For those primarily interested in geology: famous regional mines, a variety of videos, historical documents, recent scientific posters, books you can read for free or to purchase, mineral photo galleries, chronologies and stories, mineral clubs that you can join, museums you can visit, places to buy rocks, and so much more. For those wanting to dig further into the geosciences – geological surveys, government departments that work in the various areas of geoscience, and other particulars such as earthquakes, volcanoes, the coast and environment, astronomy and outer space, aurora borealis, etc.

This page is an ongoing work in progress. We are making some serious updates for 2024, so keep checking back to see what’s new. We hope to provide geoscience resources for all of New England, and maybe even beyond, one day.

A note from Jeff Morrison, President of NEMA

This website is a work in progress and managed by Jeff Morrison in association with the New England Mineral Association. The site was designed to help expand and bring awareness to the geoscience field. My love is with minerals and because of that there may be some bias; I won’t apologize for that. One of the reasons for putting this site together is that there is a tremendous amount of information scattered across the internet. Unless you know what you are looking, and exactly how to hunt for it, it can be difficult to find. Some sites can also be difficult to navigate. There is not much I can do about some of that, but in some cases I have put links to areas that I think are interesting inside a website to make them easier to locate. If you see where we can make this page easier to navigate, I am open to suggestions. If you know of more pages that would possibly be beneficial to this site send me a link and if I agree it is beneficial, I will add it.

Feel free to reach out to me with suggestions at: ​

I take no responsibility for any of the inaccuracies on some of these sites (including external sites that we link to). While some of these sites are updated frequently, many may go years with being checked by the original creator. If it might involve going to one of the localities or an event, I would highly recommend double checking times, availability, and access.
