Selected Water Resources Abstracts

This database was compiled from several sources for USGS abstracts on the subject of water resources since 1977, plus some earlier abstracts. The method of submitting and collecting abstracts was not foolproof and, therefore, this is not a complete set. The information you find here should be augmented with other methods of search such as the USGS WRSIC Research Abstracts. Abstracts for the years 1977-1993 were taken from the previous implementation of "Selected Water Resources Abstracts" (SWRA) by selecting those abstracts where the corporate author field was "Geological Survey". The full collection of Selected Water Resources Abstracts, 1977-1993, is available from the Universities Water Information Network.
