Information on specific geological topics or the results of other activities of the Survey, which may be of immediate interest to the public, are released in the Open File series (known as Open File Report series prior to 2007). Open Files can be reports (with/without accompanying maps), standalone maps, databases, etc. This series is designed for rapid release of data and ideas.

The following list is in chronological order beginning with the oldest.
