Research to Inform Management Strategies at Fire Island

Building understanding of interactions between geologic framework, oceanographic conditions and sediment transport.

Protecting Fragile Coral Ecosystems

USGS studies of coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean focus on the processes that influence the health and sustainability of coral reefs

Memorial Art Installation at USGS Science Center

Honoring the career of USGS scientist Asbury Sallenger

New geophysical data for offshore Delmarva

By defining the geologic framework, we can better understand coastal vulnerability to sea-level rise and storm events

VIPs Learn about Climate Change Impacts along San Francisco Coast

USGS research geologist Patrick Barnard led a field trip to two beaches that are within the most rapidly eroding stretch of California’s coast

New Bivalve Species Discovered in Arctic Ocean Sediment

A new species of bivalve mollusk was discovered more than 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) below the Arctic Ocean surface off northern Alaska.

Mapping Fault Deformation + Submarine Landslides Off Southern CA

To better understand offshore earthquake and tsunami hazards, USGS scientists ran a multichannel seismic survey off southern CA in late November.
