Decade of North American Geology (D-NAG) : by the Geological Society of Amercia (GSA)

The Decade of North American Geology (D-NAG) Project was established by the Geological Society of America to celebrate its 1988 Centennial year. The Canadian government also contributed a Geology of Canada to the series. The D-NAG project is intended to provide a massive, systematic synthesis of geological knowledge of North America which will serve as a benchmark of research up through the 1980's. A few of the projected 71 volumes have been cancelled (see note at end).
