Florida Geological Survey - Geologic Research

The Florida Geological Survey uses basic geological research data and maps to generate, analyze, interpret and disseminate geologic and hydrogeologic data and information to decision makers at all levels of government, academia, the consulting community and the public at large.

Such data is generated through scientific research supported by state, federal and other agency grants and conducted by section scientists, frequently in collaboration with other scientists in the university system, state and federal agencies, and the private sector with close supervision by the Section's project managers. This approach continues to produce unbiased, scientific information about Florida's environment, its water resources and ecosystems. Such information is being put to good use in making land and water use decisions by local and state agencies and by serving as topics for perusing graduate degrees in the environmental and earth sciences.
