About the USGS Geology Program


The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) strives to provide the Nation with reliable earth science information that is used to minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; to manage energy, mineral, water, and biological resources; to enhance and protect the quality of life; and to contribute to wise economic development and a sustainable future. This mission requires that the USGS anticipate and respond in a timely manner to a broad array of national earth science issues. The science strategy described in this report outlines how the Geologic Division (GD) of the USGS will face the challenges of the next decade and ensure maximum contribution and relevance to the national interest.
