Southwest Biological Science Center, Arizona Water Science Center, and Western Geographic Science Center
The Southwest Biological Science Center (SBSC) is based in Flagstaff, AZ, with field stations in Tucson, AZ, and Moab, UT. SBSC's social media highlights terrestrial and river ecosystem science conducted on the Colorado Plateau, Colorado River, and drylands of Arizona, California, and Utah. SBSC's mission is to conduct quality, objective research on the lands and aquatic systems of the Southwest. This research can assist those who manage, conserve, and rehabilitate the arid regions of the nation.

The Arizona Water Science Center (AzWSC) is based in Tucson, AZ, with field stations in Flagstaff, Glendale, and Yuma, AZ. AzWSC’s social media highlights science conducted in water systems across Arizona. The mission of the AzWSC is to collect and interpret high quality, impartial scientific information to provide resource managers and the public with the knowledge required to understand and manage the critical resources of Arizona and the Southwest. Key capabilities include water use, streamflow monitoring, microgravity-based hydrologic analysis, surface geophysics, water-quality monitoring, continuous slope area, uncrewed aircraft systems, groundwater-surface water interaction modeling.
