Detailed Description

The U.S. Geological Survey is the science research agency for the U.S. Department of the Interior. We conduct research on the natural hazards that threaten lives and livelihoods around the country. We also monitor the water, energy, minerals and other natural resources we rely on; the health of our ecosystems and environment; and the impacts of climate and land-use change. We depend on energetic, creative and dedicated teams of scientists to brave the outdoor elements and the constantly changing analytical challenges that must be overcome to properly interpret changes in complex environments.
