The U.S. Geological Survey conducts a wide range of geological and
geophysical research and mapping investigations of the continental margins
of the United States and worldwide through its Office of Energy and Marine
Geology. Within this Office, the Branch of Atlantic Marine Geology carries
out investigations primarily along the U.S. Atlantic Coast and the Gulf of
Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, the Great Lakes, and Polar regions. These marine
geologic studies identify environmental problems and geologic hazards in
offshore areas and assess critical nearshore processes that affect erosion,
wetland loss, and polluted sediments.
