U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)
The USGS serves the nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and enhance and protect our quality of life.
Science Centers within the USGS provide hubs for human dimensions in the USGS by hosting projects that integrate social, behavioral, economic, and biological analyses in the context of human and natural resource interactions. Resource planners, managers, and policymakers in the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) and Agriculture (USDA), state and local agencies, and international agencies use information from the studies to make informed natural-resource management and policy decisions.
