Forsyth, P.J.; Hoolihan, K.; Lock, R.G. 1979 A geological bibliography of the Raukumara Peninsula, northern and central Hawkes Bay. Lower Hutt: New Zealand Geological Survey. Report NZGS 88 47 p.
Abstract: Compilation of this bibliography was initially undertaken as part of the New Zealand Geological Survey's Cretaceous-Cenozoic project. Accordingly, the original aim was to produce a list of sources of stratigraphic data relevant to Cretaceous-Cenozoic basinal studies in the northern part of the East Coast Basin. However, a greater than anticipated demand for a general geological bibliography of the region necessitated broadening the scope to include all aspects of geology. The area covered by the bibliography is shown in the figure and includes eastern Bay of Plenty, Raukumara Peninsula, and the northern and central parts of Hawkes Bay. All geological publications including books, bulletins, maps, papers and articles dealing with this area and published before May 1979, are listed in the author index. In addition, a large number of unpublished works are included. These are limited to the following categories : open-file petroleum and mineral exploration reports held by the NZGS, student theses held by New Zealand universities or the NZGS, selected unpublished NZGS reports, abstracts and tour guides from NZGS conferences.
