Earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, tsunamis and landslides in the Western U.S.: the role of state geological surveys
State geological surveys play a pivotal role in identifying, evaluating and communicating geologic hazards to their state’s constituents.
More Money, More Mapping! AZGS Embarks on Ambitious Geologic Mapping Campaign

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.
