The USGS is the nation's natural science agency, covering a range of disciplines --- geology, hydrology, cartography, geography, and biology. The USGS provides scientific information the nation needs so we can live more safely on our beautiful but sometimes dangerous planet. A new report on disaster information will be published in the near future. Watch for it on the Hazards Theme page.
