U.S. Geological Survey Programs in Florida, 1999: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File
Report 99-196, 4 p.
The safety, health, and economic well-being of Florida'ís citizens are important to
the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), which is involved in water-related, geologic,
biological, land use, and mapping issues in many parts of the State. The USGS
office in Tallahassee acts as the liaison for all studies conducted by USGS
scientists in Florida. Water resources activities are conducted not only from
the office in Tallahassee, but also from offices in Miami, Tampa, and Altamonte
Springs (Orlando). Scientists in these offices investigate surface water, ground
water and water quality in Florida, working in cooperation with other Federal,
State and local agencies and organizations.
The USGS Center for Coastal Geology and Regional Marine Studies was established
in St. Petersburg in 1988, in cooperation with the University of South Florida.
The Center conducts a wide variety of research on mineral resources and on coastal
and regional marine problems, including coastal erosion, climate change, wetlands
deterioration, and coastal pollution. A USGS mapping office is located in St.
Petersburg. Also, the Earth Science Information Center (ESIC) in Tallahassee
provides USGS information to customers and directs inquiries to the appropriate
USGS office or State agency on earth science topics, particularly those related
to cartography, geography, aerial photography, and digital data. Biologists at
the USGS Florida Caribbean Science Center, located in Gainesville, conduct
biological and ecosystem studies in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
