Title

Charles "Chip" Groat: Neilly Series Lecture

Date

2005-04-21

Description

Charles "Chip" Groat, Director of the US Geological Service, will discuss "US Geological Survey: 125 Years of Science for America." He will talk about how the USGS began as surveys of the West in the 1870s and has evolved into a natural science agency that is involved in many more societally relevant matters than most of the general public realizes. These include natural hazards, water resources, energy resource assessments, biological systems studies, and serving as the nation's civilian mapping agency. For example, the USGS maintains national and global seismic networks that monitor earthquake activity and works with a variety of agencies on earthquake preparedness. Introduction by John Tarduno.
