*Note: The Georgia Geological Society Guidebooks series starts with the 1981 issue. Even though the 1981 to 1987 issues contain no numbers on the first printing; they are considered part of the series. Guidebooks for the 1966-1980 meetings were published and distributed mostly by the Georgia Geologic Survey and variously referenced (Fritz, Power and Cramer, GGS Guidebooks, vol. 8, no. 1, p. 1-2). Even though these older guidebooks are part of the set of publications associated with meetings of the Georgia Geological Society, they are not considered part of the Georgia Geological Society Guidebook series.
