The U.S. Geological Survey is the nation's largest water, earth, and biological science and civilian mapping agency. It collects, monitors, analyzes, and provides scientific understanding of natural resource conditions, issues, and problems. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Contact the U.S. Geological Survey.

Water Resources Offices. Building on the success of more than years of USGS topographic mapping, the US Topo series is a new generation of maps of the American landscape. US Topo topographic maps are produced by the National Geospatial Program of the U.S.

Geological Survey (USGS). The project was launched in lateand the term “US Topo” refers specifically to quadrangle. The United States Geological Survey (USGS, formerly simply Geological Survey) is a scientific agency of the United States scientists of the USGS study the landscape of the United States, its natural resources, and the natural hazards that threaten it.

The organization has four major science disciplines, concerning biology, geography, geology, and executive: James F. Reilly, Director. State Geological Survey and State Geologist Established inthe Bureau of Economic Geology of The University of Texas at Austin is a research entity of the university and functions as the State Geological Survey.

Effects of Prescribed Fire in the Coastal Prairies of Texas by U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Department of the Interior | Paperback. Meteorologic and physiographic factors in parts of Texas combine to produce some of the most intense rainstorms in the Nation; these rainstorms cause severe, destructive floods somewhere in the State almost every year.

A recent example is the catastrophic flooding in the Houston area in October that resulted in at least 22 deaths, hundreds of millions of dollars in property Author: U.S. Geological Survey. The U.S. Geological Survey hydrologic data, modeling tools, and publications to help California water resource managers plan for and assess hydrologic issues associated with groundwater use.

Shared access to reliable data, case studies, technical and investigate reports, software, and other information and tools is essential for sustainable groundwater management.

Welcome to the largest earth science library in the world. Established in to build and organize a collection of scientific materials in the earth sciences, the U.S.

Geological Survey Library is now the largest library for earth sciences in the : Dennis Trombatore. Source: U.S. Geological Survey, data But in a city built on a low-lying coastal plain, on “black gumbo,” clay-based soil that is among the least absorbent in the nation, many experts say.

Our library maintains a specialized collection of materials to provide scientific, technical, and legislative information in support of all TCEQ programs. Our primary purpose is to assist staff, but we also serve other state agencies, consulting firms, businesses, universities, teachers, students, and interested citizens.

Aquifers: Ground Water Atlas of the United States. The Ground Water Atlas of the United States, USGS Hydrologic Atlas (Miller, ), describes the location, hydrologic characteristics, and geologic characteristics of the principal aquifers throughout the 50 States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.

Virgin groundwater information summarized in the Atlas was collected over. Naturally formed perchlorate falls from the atmosphere and accumulates in the soil of a Nevada desert at rates several times greater than previously thought, according to research by U.S.

Geological Survey (USGS) and Texas Tech University scientists published in the Journal of Environmental study is the first to document how natural perchlorate is delivered. This book was first conceived as being devoted entirely to descriptions of the maps produced by the U.S. Geological Survey.

As the project developed, however, it became clear that the story of maps is not complete unless it is properly set in the background of the American mapping effort as a 5/5(1).
