Scientific Investigations Reports (SIR)

Scientific Investigations Reports (SIR) report significant data and interpretations of lasting scientific interest but are generally narrower in scope than Professional Papers. SIRs includes collections of related papers addressing different aspects of a single scientific topic, either issued as individual chapters or as a single volume; proceedings and abstracts for USGS-sponsored meetings; some field trip guidebooks and road logs; and general manuals.
