GMEG - Mineral and Environmental Resources

Mineral and Environmental Resources

Natural systems consist of a variety of interrelated geologic, biologic, hydrologic, and climatic subsystems, each with their own set of processes that effect, and are effected by, other subsystem processes.  In many cases today, anthropogenic subsystems also effect, and are affected by, natural processes.  Our scientists have a diverse set of skills and capabilities that have been and can be applied to diverse geoscientific issues of importance to society and the economy.  Our approach to any particular problem is to understand the operable processes and their interrelations and provide comprehensive products that allow for more informed land-management decisions.
