U.S. Geological Survey

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) is a Federal Bureau of the Department of Interior (DOI), responsible for fulfilling the Nation’s needs for reliable, impartial scientific information to describe and understand the Earth. This information is used to minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy and mineral resources; enhance and protect the quality of life; and contribute to wise economic and physical development.

The scientific nature of the USGS, its national perspective and its non-regulatory role enable the USGS to provide information and understanding that are policy relevant and policy neutral.”

The Woods Hole Science Center is located on the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s Quissett Campus with an off-site Marine Operations Facility. As a partner in the Woods Hole scientific community we are actively committed to supporting the goals of the Woods Hole Scientific Community Diversity Initiative.
