Abstract

In keeping with our national mission, the USGS in Alaska provides timely and objective scientific information to help the Nation address issues and solve problems in five major topical areas (listed alphabetically):

  • Energy and Minerals;
  • Geospatial Mapping;
  • Natural Hazards;
  • Water Quality, Streamflow, and Ice Dynamics; and
  • Wildlife, Fish, and Habitat.  

The USGS in Alaska engages about 400 scientists and support staff working in three major science centers, Cooperative Research Units, and USGS centers outside Alaska, with a combined annual science budget of about $60 million. In just the last 5 years, the USGS in Alaska has produced scientific benefits resulting from more than 1,000 publications and about 250 technical reports.
