Bureau of Economic Geology
Research Unit Profile
The Bureau of Economic Geology's mission is to provide research and advice related to energy and environmental issues and to perform State Geological Survey functions as requested by the State Legislature. Outreach efforts involve the public, State agencies, Federal agencies, private foundations, and industry. The Bureau conducts basic and applied research related to energy resources including oil, natural gas, and coal; mineral resources; coastal processes; Earth and environmental systems; hydrogeology; carbon sequestration; nanotechnology; energy economics; and geologic mapping. The Bureau disseminates scientific knowledge by (1) publishing research results in scientific journals, in Bureau reports, and on the Internet; (2) conducting technology transfer workshops and schools; (3) participating in professional meetings; (4) training undergraduate and graduate students and postdocs by providing hands-on research experience with modern datasets; and (5) promoting K-12 and public outreach.
