Much of what is known about terrestial life during the Devonian Period has come from many extraordinary fossil discoveries made at Gilboa, NY.
The abundance and often superb preservation of fossils form Gilboa have made this area one of the most important Devonian fossil localities in the world.
Well written and loaded with photographs, this book, at only $14.95, is a . .

The New York State Geological Survey is the oldest, and one of the smallest geological survey in North America., Their staff in Albany can provide a large number of bedrock and surficial geologic maps, research reports, and offer access to unpublished open-file materials. In addition, their professional staff is available to answer general questions about the geology of the state. The New York State Geological Survey is online, and the best way to get there is through our:

NYS Department of Environmental Conservation:

DEC's Division of Mineral Resources regulates the mining and petroleum industries in New York. Their website has a great deal of information on these industries, and the regulations that govern them.

NYSGA Guidebooks:

Another excellent source of geologic reports, maps, and sections covering many regions of the state are the New York State Geological Association Guidebooks. These field trip guidebooks have been prepared each year, for more than thirty years, by the host college for the NYSGA annual meeting. The field guide for a given year will generally describe much of the bedrock and surficial geology of the host region. This link above will provide you with a price list and ordering instructions for these guidebooks. Don't overlook this excellent resource.

New York geology "on the rocks":

Two well known New York geologists; Charles Merguerian, and John Sanders have produced an excellent set of field-guides, known collectively as the "On-The-Rocks" series. Each book in this series includes a section on the region's geologic background
( glacial, tectonic, and geomorphic history), localities to be visited, detailed driving instructions, descriptions of individual localties, and references for further study. Most of these guides cover areas of Long Island, New York City, and southeastern New York. Additional information and ordering instructions are available online.
