The earth sciences are essential in achieving environmental protection goals. Daily decisions and the success of long-term strategies that protect our environment rely on our scientists in the lab and in the field collecting and analyzing information about Florida’s natural systems and processes.

Because many of our actions and policies that protect the environment rely on science-driven data, DEP's Florida Geological Survey joins the American Geoscience Institute in celebrating Earth Science.
