USGS Scientific Research Results
One of our primary functions is to provide quality scientific information to the public through our various products.
Climate plays an important role in where plants, animals, and humans can thrive. As the global climate changes, it threatens the safety and well-being of our communities, our economy, and our natural heritage. The USGS investigates the causes and consequences of climate change and helps people create strategies to navigate this global crisis.
