We offer a range of geologic maps, topographic maps, geospatial map applications, and more. Start your topical exploration.
This science includes the processes critical to the formation, accumulation, occurrence, and alteration of geologically based energy resources, robust assessments of those resources, and the study of the impact of energy resource occurrence and/or production and use on both environmental and human health.
Environmental health science focuses on the interface between health and the environment, where interactions among people, the environment, and other living organisms affect the risk of toxicologic and infectious disease.
Learn more about what science is being conducted to learn more about geologic processes, erosion, faulting, folding, geochemistry, geologic mapping, land subsidence, plate tectonics, rock deformation, sedimentation, soil chemistry, and more.
Data about Earth and its resources are only useful if available in a format that is understandable and accessible. We provide the Nation with ready access to natural science information that supports smart decisions about how to respond to natural risks and manage natural resources.
We provide scientific information for objective resource assessments and unbiased research results on mineral potential, production, consumption, and environmental effects. The USGS Minerals Resource Program is the sole Federal source for this information.
Natural hazard science is the study of coastal and marine geology, earthquake hazards, geomagnetism, landslides, volcanoes, seismological and geophysical sensors, floods, droughts, tsunamis, hurricanes, and storms.
