- Earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, tsunamis and landslides in the Western U.S.: the role of state geological surveysState geological surveys play a pivotal role in identifying, evaluating and communicating geologic hazards to their state’s constituents.
We are excited to announce that the AZGS award for the STATEMAP Program in Fiscal Year 20-21 is $324k – a 2-fold increase from our current level of funding and much more than we have ever received before. With the required 50/50 state match, we will be devoting unprecedented resources to geologic mapping in Arizona over the coming year.

- AZGS releases geologic maps for the Secret Pass 7 ½' Quadrangle and the southern part of the Union Pass 7 ½' Quadrangle, Mohave County, Arizona.
- AZGS at work for Arizona: Identifying landslide deposits and hazards along the I-17 corridor from Anthem to Flagstaff, AZAZGS geoscientists are examining and mapping landslide features along the I-17 corridor from Anthem to Flagstaff. The results will inform ADOT's $300+ million project to improve I-17.
- Studying the Earth in the field is an integral method of geoscience (Kastens et al., 2009), and teaching in the field is fundamental to geoscience education (Whitmeyer et al., 2009).
- AZGS is providing the ‘Cordilleran Metamorphic Core Complexes and their Uranium Favorability’ report published in 1980 as part of the U.S. National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program.
Every four years the National Earthquake Program Managers (NEPM) meeting dovetails with that of the National Earthquake Conference (NEC). The result is a 5-day conference to evaluate the latest in earthquake science, earthquake engineering, and earthquake mitigation strategies.
