Connections - Partnerships in Science
Welcome to Connections: Partnerships in Science
The USGS provides comprehensive, high quality, and timely scientific information to help the resource managers of the Department of the Interior (DOI) meet their mission goals. For more than 120 years, we have provided essential scientific information, research, and products to aid the management of the Nation's earth resources and to reduce human and monetary effects of natural disasters.
Through our diverse expertise in Geologic Hazards, Resources, and Processes, we monitor and research causes of earthquakes, landslides, and volcanoes, conduct geologic mapping of land and seafloor resources, and assess energy and mineral resources. We produce scientific reports, maps, and digital data for a wide array of users including resource managers, scientists, educators, policy makers, and the general public.
The Connections pages put you in touch with scientific activities we conduct in collaboration with other DOI Bureaus. One example of these partnerships is the Science in the Parks effort where geologic mapping projects are developed and selected jointly by the National Park Service and the USGS. Another example is our partnership with the Bureau of Land Management to assess geothermal energy resources located on public lands.
The projects in Connections are organized by DOI Bureaus and also by Geology Science Activities. We invite you to explore the website and to make your connection!
