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 that protect the environment rely on science-driven data, DEP's Florida Geological Survey (FGS) joins the American Geoscience Institute in celebrating Earth Science Week, Oct. 10-16, 2021. This year's theme was "Water Today and for the Future" to emphasize the importance of learning how to understand, conserve and protect water.
