Geology & Soils Data
Geologists identify, measure and monitor key natural resources, including water, soils, minerals and oil. They study the processes that underlie the formation and distribution of these resources, and provide valuable information to businesses and policymakers.
Water researchers work across the entire water cycle and include studies on precipitation, run-off, groundwater, lakes, wetlands, rivers and streams. They examine how environmental changes affect water quality and supplies, model water movement to predict water availability, and learn more about water's connections to climate, ecosystems and human communities.
