How do I contact the USGS?

For general science inquiries, call 1-888-392-8545. You can also use this website to send us a message or to initiate a live Web chat with a USGS Science Information Specialist.

For questions on the distribution of federal park passes, maps, books and other science products, or the status of existing orders, call 1-888-275-8747 or visit the USGS Store website.

Most of our employees are listed in our online Staff Profiles.

USGS offices are located in every state. Please note, however, that most of them perform very specific research, so they do not have specialists in all science topics on staff.
