Shows the solid and drift geology together as the 'under-foot'
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has adapted to the changing
political, economic, and technical state of the nation and the
world since it was established in the late nineteenth century. Over
a period of more than 120 years, the USGS has evolved from a small
group of scientists who collected data and provided guidance on how
to parcel, manage, and use the public lands of the West to an
agency comprised of thousands of scientists who conduct research
and assessment activities on complex scientific issues at scales
ranging from the local to the global. The USGS will no doubt
continue to evolve and adapt to meet changing national needs. In
fact, the recent integration of the National Biological Service and
parts of the U.S. Bureau of Mines into the USGS presents an ideal
opportunity to examine the agency's vision, mission, role, and
scientific opportunities as the organization begins the early years
of the twenty-first century. The USGS recognized the need to adapt
to changing demands when it asked the National Research Council
(NRC) to undertake this study. The NRC formed a multidisciplinary
committee of 16 experts to address issues related to the future
roles, challenges, and opportunities of the agency.
