This appendix provides a selected bibliography of peer-reviewed scientific publications about international work authored or co-authored by USGS scientists. Drawn from a total international publication list of nearly 300 going back to 1980, these examples illustrate the wide range of international science work performed by the USGS over many years. Although a number of these references predate the USGS reorganization in 2010, we have, for convenience, attempted to organize the publications by mission area, although the cross-disciplinary nature of many of the publications is also evident.
