Wading bird numbers in the Florida Everglades are driven by water patterns that play out over multiple years according to a new study by the USGS and Florida Atlantic University. Previously, existing water conditions were seen as the primary driving factor affecting numbers of birds, but this research shows that the preceding years’ water conditions and availability are equally important. http://on.doi.gov/1Nj8MQz

Solar Storm Trivia: According to the USGS, geomagnetic storms don’t interfere with: GPS, oil drilling or plant genetics? For the answer to this – and other fun science trivia questions - go to the Science.gov website. The USGS, as part of 16 other Federal science and research agencies who make up the Science.gov alliance, is sponsoring a “trivia challenge”. The questions are posted on the Science.gov Twitter site. To get the answer to these questions, you will be taken to the Science.gov Trivia Challenge page, where you can get the correct answer, more details and see previous questions from other agencies. So, go ahead, and take the challenge! http://go.usa.gov/b2u5

Science for a changing world
Introduction
The USGS is a science organization that provides impartial information on the health of our ecosystems and environment, the natural hazards that threaten us, the natural resources we rely on, the impacts of climate and land-use change, and the core science systems that help us provide timely, relevant, and useable information.

This is our main USGS Google+ account (what we typically like to refer to as the "bureau account").

Content and links to third-party sites do not constitute endorsement of those sites or their content by the U.S. Geological Survey and are meant for informational purposes only.

  • off-topic posts or repetitive posts that are copied and pasted
  • personal information including, but not limited to, email addresses, telephone numbers, mailing addresses, or identification numbers
  • comments which may cause public panic or may falsely cite the deployment of emergency services (e.g., "major earthquake to strike Los Angeles in next 24 hours!").
