Documentary about sea-level rise features USGS findings

USGS research in Republic of the Marshall Islands forms part of scientific foundation of “The Last Generation” released April 6 by PBS Frontline.

USGS Global Ocean Mineral Resources Project Page

We seek to understand both how and where mineral-rich deposits form in the ocean, and investigate potential environmental impacts of seafloor mining.

Nor’easter and Forecasted Coastal Change

USGS Coastal Change Hazards Portal provides forecasts on the potential for beach erosion, overwash and inundation during hurricanes and other severe coastal storms.

Pacific Missile Tracking Site Could Be Unusable in 20 Years

Living and working on the Pacific islands hosting a key missile tracking site soon could be almost impossible due to the impacts of climate change.

Giant grooves discovered on earthquake fault offshore Costa Rica

Detailed three-dimensional data can help researchers better understand large subduction zone earthquakes and related tsunamis worldwide.

January 2018 Issue of Sound Waves Online

Stories about the Queen Charlotte-Fairweather Fault, the Fall AGU meeting, and more.

Virtual Reality helps us 'see' the Future

USGS partners with Google Daydream Impact Project, "Rising Seas--Today and Tomorrow," which allows people to glimpse the future on LA's beaches.

Computer simulation predicts flooding on coral reef-lined coasts

New model called BEWARE can be used to predict short-term flooding and longer term impacts of sea-level rise that threaten property and public safety.

First observation of gold particles in hot hydrothermal fluids

USGS scientist Amy Gartman and coauthors published their discovery of gold particles in boiling fluids from a hydrothermal vent.
